After Installing latest patch - GTA IV will not run
so I bought GTA IV , thinking that my system would be close to having the required specs.
Installed the game and found that I had graphics issues. So them did the usual updated drivers,
and downloaded game patches. The result? now the game won't load.

I went to the "Can You Run It" site and it tells me that my video card isn't good enough,
but the stats it lists , all pass. So color me confused. Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

Video Card
Minimum: 256MB NVIDIA 7900+ / 256MB ATI X1900+ You Have: GeForce 7300 LE
Features: Minimum attributes of your Video Card
Required
Video RAM 256 MB
3D Yes
Hardware T&L Yes
Pixel Shader version 3.0
Vertex Shader version 3.0

You Have
Video RAM 512.0 MB
3D Yes
Hardware T&L Yes
Pixel Shader version 3.0
Vertex Shader version 3.0


Upgrade Suggested: Unfortunately, your Video Card does not meet this requirement. Click here to see some recommendations.

So there must be some other specs that aren't listed that my card doesn't match because according to what i see my card should be good enough.

thanks for any input.

I have since figured out that my video card actually only has 128 MB of ram ( i used SIW)
so that would explain why i was having graphics issues when it would run, but does little to explain
why after installing the patch it does not work at all.
