Fix GTA 4 DD3D30 (D3D) Error in Windows 7

GTA IV is a action-adventure video game with high quality graphics, sound effects, various stages and characters.It is the sixth 3D game in the Grand Theft Auto series. Grand Theft Auto IV has already received overwhelmingly positive reviews, becoming one of the highest-rated games of all time on Games review websites.

Officially the game is compatible with Windows 7 but some of the users get the following error when pressing the “Play” button
D3D Error – Please re-boot your system
This problem continues even after changing the compatibility mode to Windows Vista or Windows XP for the game or rebooting the system.

Here is a workaround to fix this by reducing the color quaility from highest quality of True Color (32 bit) to lower quality of High Color (16 bit). Right click on Desktop >> select Screen Resolution >> Advanced settings >> Monitor tab. and change the display resolution. Else you can also reduce the desktop display resolution to 800×600 pixels as GTA 4 runs properly at this resolution. Once you are in the game, change back to original resolution.
