GTA IV Fatal Error DD3D50?

I know this has been asked many times, so forgive me, but I'm trying to play GTA IV on my PC and I get this fatal error when trying to start the game. Here's the specs on my computer:

HP Pavilion ZD8230US laptop computer

Processor: Intel Pentium 4 650 HT w/speed step, 3.4 GHz

Memory: 2 GB RAM

Hard Drive: 250 GB

Graphics Card: ATI Mobility Radeon x600 w/256 MB dedicated RAM

OS: Windows XP Media Center w/Service Pack 3

I also installed the newest Flash player and DirectX 10

I'm not the greatest with computers, but I looked up the specs on the ATI x1900 (the recommended one), and it says that it also has 256 MB of dedicated RAM, so my question is why won't mine work?

Thanks for your help

    DD3D50 means DirectX 9 video card required for playing Grand Theft Auto IV. Your video card is below NVIDIA GeForce 7900 / ATI Radeon X1900 Series.
