running gta 3 on laptop

Specs: windows xp, celeron@2.5ghz/768mb

I found an old gta 3 game in my room and I was wondering if I could install it onto my laptop. I tried on my desktop, but it does not meet the minimum requirements. The game is asking for: Windows 98 or higher, P3@450mhz or higher, 16mb 3d directx 8.1 competible video card or higher, and 96mb of ram. My laptop has winxp, celeron prosessor@2.5ghz, a 16mb 3d directx 9.1 competible intel 852 GME with intel extream graphics video card, and 768mb of ram (256+512). The reason why I am asking if gta 3 would run on the a40 is because when I run fs2004 sometimes I get the Blue Screen Of Death, and that game only requires an 8mb 3d video card.

I'd be willing to bet you can increase the video memory amount in the BIOS...your options are probably 8, 16, 32, 64MB, possibly higher.

I don't think I want to do that because this laptop has my dad's buisness info on it. I want to know if the game would run without "messing up" the computer.

Dude, it's just a simple change of a setting. Maybe you shouldn't be playing with daddy's business laptop to begin with?

Ok so I increase th video memory amount in the BIOS. The game recomends 32mb of video memory, should I increase it to 64 or leave it at 32?

I would go all the way to 64MB. But be aware that this will "steal" that 64MB from the 768MB system RAM, so in effect, the laptop will only be running with 704MB

Ok. I played the game at 16mb then changed it to 64 and I found that the game run better at 64mb than 16. Also on the toshiba website, I looked up my a40 and it said that I should have 64mb of video memory, but it only had 16mb of vram when my dad got it. Do you know why this happend?
