  1. Not sure if this is your problem, but many older games report insufficient memory if you have TOO MUCH. Similar to the Y2K bug.

    I forced one of my games into Compatibility Mode. Tried "XP" first then "Windows 98" (both appear to work depending on the game).

    If that's not the issue Google your problem.

    already googled but no solution
  3. Try end your explorer process in the task manager.

    Run vice city manually through task manager

    See if that works.

    Once youve finished with the game just re start explorer.exe through your task manager
