I have several suggestons for you:

- install newest drivers for your video card
- install DirectX 9.0b , you have not mentioned the version so I suppose you still have the 9.0 (also try the normal version, you don't need the SDK for playing games)
- for GTA 3 & GTA: Vice City to run, Windows Xp SP1 is needed
- also try the newest avaiable patch for GTA Vice City

In addition to the problem already posted, here are some of the details the some of you wanted.
I have the latest drivers for my card, directx 9.0b and windows XP SP1 is not needed to run the game. the game is running fine on my friend's system who doesn't have SP1 and also, his configuration is way too below mine. the diference is that he has an NVIDIA Geforce 2 integrated GPU.

Well, according to this list:

http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/gaming/82865.htm

your graphics controller is capable of running the game with default settings. Have you tried setting the video options to default? Perhaps it only cannot display the Trails feature, for example.

Also,

http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/gaming/troubleshooting.htm

gives you hints what to do if your not capable to run/start the game.

i had no success in running the game. I am planning to buy a graphics card now :-(( I am accepting mcwojtekk's solutions because of the hard work put by him/her. I am upset that such new motherboards from such big companies are incapable of playing games which run smoothly on other manufacturers' older boards.

I am fixed by using latest graphics drivers 6.14.10.3722 (ftp://aiedownload.intel.com/df-support/6889/a08/win2k_xp136.exe) with DirectX 9b. Now game is running fine. Performace comparable with my friend's GeForce 4.
