How come GTA IV freezes and locks up my entire computer?

by on December 2, 2009

Q: My computer keeps on freezing when I am playing GTA IV. I can play it with no lag using Windows Vista SP1 but once it freezes I cannot use ctrl+alt+delete to cancel it I have have to hold the power button turn it off. What can I do to figure out why it is freezing and resolve it?

    Lots of potential causes unfortunately.

    I’d suggest making sure your running the latest video card drivers from nvidia or ati depending on your video card.
