    okay well ... i now got far more information than i had b4 ... lets start ... okay ...

    note*1 : i have vista and only 2 gb of ram ?? could that be causing any problem ? cause i thought it need 4 gb ??

    note*2 : if i put everything on low and all the shadow denisty vehichle denisty and all that stuff to 0 and 1 ... still this happens ..

    note*3 : in case you still dont exactly gets whats wrong .. check the pictures

    note*4 : i can run the game on high texture/render without lag at all ... but i always keep it on meduim cause on high the problem happens like 5 mins after gameplay lol

    note*5 : when this happens if i minimized the game then maxmized it again (by task manager) then the game is fine but then again after a while it starts happening ...

    note*6 : pc specs :
    AMD ATHLON II X2 250 @ 3.00GHZ
    2 GB RAM
    ATI RAEDON 4730

    It sounds to me as if you do not have enough RAM. Or at least that's what the problem would strike me as.

    I'll search a bit for a solution. It seems as if that your computer runs out of memory to constantly load new textures and such and everything just ends up blanking out. But, this is just from a look at your screenshots.

    Edit: Silly me to forget this question, but have you updated your GTA to the latest version?

    No problem dude. I remember how horribly optimized GTA4 was for the PC prior to the patches but I was silly enough to forget to ask you that.

    My lappie isn't powerful enough for GTA... But come this weekend I should have my new AMD Build and I should be able to run the game on full =D
