The question is simple. I tried the sh3 config utility, searched on google and sh wiki but no luck? Do you have any idea?

Please note that I'm playing the original, not the HD version.

what platform are you playing it on? – Taz Apr 13 '12 at 11:34
I'm playing the PC version. I edited my question. – Adam Arold Apr 13 '12 at 11:36
"In Silent Hill 3 you have the option to turn the noise filter off which does make it look better, and makes the graphical update clearer, but that may take away from the atmosphere a little bit." - thats all i could find... Grain Effect = Noise Filter. double check settings. – Taz Apr 13 '12 at 11:47
I checked options like 4 times. Now I checked them again but still no luck. Maybe I have to finish it first to be able to turn it off like in Silent Hill 2? – Adam Arold Apr 13 '12 at 11:54
Can you provide a link for your quote? – Adam Arold Apr 13 '12 at 11:54

From the game's Options menu, you need to go to the Extra Options Menu where you can turn the noise/grain filter off. On the PS2, you did this with the L1 button as described here. On PC, I'm not sure what button it is, but since the PS2 uses L1 and R1 to turn and the PC version uses Q and E to turn, I would try hitting the Q or E buttons from the Options menu to see if you can access the Extra Options.

Thanks. I never thought pressing q/e will help. – Adam Arold Apr 14 '12 at 22:27
