Patching to 1.0.4.0 video card problems

Greetings everyone on this forum,
I've installed the ICEnhancer for the 1.0.7.0 version of the game recently, but since the 1.0.4.0 version offers better graphical effects I want to try it out as well. However, difficulties have crossed my path.

When playing on the 1.0.7.0 version of the game, I encountered the graphics card recognition problem. This was simply solved by adding "-norestrictions -nomemrestrict" to the steam startup line. The game ran perfectly fine, even with the ICEnhancer installed. However, patching to 1.0.4.0 changed this; Even though the "-nortestrictions -nomemrestrict" was still there, I had the same problem as before. I googled a bit on the intwerwebs, and found out two different strategies: Making a commandline.cfg/commandline.txt with the same parameters in it, or making a shortcut to the 'LaunchGTAIV' program, again with the same paramaeters. But none of them worked.
Has anybody encountered this problem aswell?

Just to clarify;

GTA IV for STEAM
Running it from an SSD

Specs;
Graphics card: AMD Radeon R9 280X
Motherboard: MSI z87-G45 Gaming
CPU: Intel i5 4670k Overclocked

Any comments would be appreciated
