Try this: right click on GTA4, select properties, then select launch options

copy and paste this into the field that comes up

-nomemrestrict -norestrictions

exactly like that,

the reason why its not letting you set anything is because gta4 only supported GPUS up to 2gb, so since yours is 3gb, it miscalculated how much ram was up for use and thinks you dont have enough, therefore enforcing this lock down on the graphics options,

that command line will bypass it

this works for desktop too, right click the shortcut on the desktop and select properties, then shortcut tab, then at the end of target quotes add a space then -nomemrestrict -norestrictions
should look like
"C:\Grand Theft Auto IV\LaunchGTAIV.exe" -nomemrestrict -norestrictions
for example
