Hello all,

Yesterday i installed GTAV again on my Windows 10 PC but the game keeps loading for more then 15-20 minutes. I already tried the following:

-Run as admin

-Put the game on real time priority

-Used Razer

Can it be my hard disk? Though I have one of 1.81TB with 1.66TB left I know its worn out and need another one, could it be that?

Is there anything else I can do please?

Thanks in advance!

These are the recommended requirements for GTA V, do you have them all?


CPU: Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHz (8 CPUs)
CPU SPEED: Info
RAM: 8 GB
OS: Windows 10 64 Bit, Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD 7870 2GB
SOUND CARD: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
FREE DISK SPACE: 72 GB

Defrag you drive. Chop it up into smaller drive so it doesn't have to index the whole 1.8 TB to write/read. Try that!

Disregard that post!
Ok, get set!

Hit the Windows key....Type in DEFRA

A menu will complete that says...DEFRAG and OPTIMIZE DRIVES.

Click on it.....

Click on your drive, and Analyze it...if it says it needs Defrag, Defrag....Post back, and we move on (playing World of warships at moment......stand by!)!

Ive met it analyse and optimalise but nothing yet, did i do something wrong? Now there stands: (OK 0% fragmented)?

OK, so now that is is DEFRAGGED, lets chop it up into a smaller partition. Open disk management, and select your drive. Let us know when you have accomplished that....

Ok, so what you want to do, is do into disk management, and chop that big drive into 2 smaller ones. They do not have to be the same size. Size one out for your game, and one out for everything else. Make certain you make the Game drive large enough for update files and saves and such. What this does, is indexes a smaller drive, which in turn will speed up processing! This is called short stroking. Create a 60GB HD just for your OS. So, what that means is, take everything off the PC, except for the OS (save to external usb). Shrink the drive to its smallest size, and add about 20GB to it (should maybe be 80GB at that point). Now partition another two drives out of the remaining space. Install your files on one, and your games on another!
