I've been reading what other forums have to say on this issue, and the consensus seems to be that the intel graphics chip isn't up to the job of provided the necessary 'grunt' for games like GTA, Sim City etc.
On the other hand, I also found a possible fix which I quote below in full to show credit where due. I take no credit for it myself, and no blame if it proves useless!
"Ladies and Gents` I give you.....
The answer to your prayers:http://www.opendrive...e-download.html
Note that this is only if you have an intel 82852/82855 GM/GME Graphics Controler although I don't know if it's compatible with others.
For years I've searched for a driver update to stop the display driver error which keeps happpening in many of my games however I kept getting the error message when trying to install the driver intel told me to, saying how it cannot be installed and that I must contact my system adminisrator.
Then today I got annoyed and downloaded every single driver I could find in google for my chipset and this one worked!!!!"
