This is for GTA: San Andreas

I've googled this and seen a few people with this problem, but no one has said of anyway to fix this.

My game lags like sh*t. And it's not just regular, slow fps lag, it's just random lag spikes. About one second out of every 15 seconds is just frozen. I'll be running a smooth game, and then out of no where, the game stops for a second, then back up. It only happens when I'm outside, but when I'm in my house, or in the barber, it doesn't lag.

I have an Alienware m14x laptop. Running Windows 7 Professional 64bit
i7 Core Processor 2.2 GHZ
3.0 GB nVidia Geforce 550m
8GB of Ram
1TB 5400rpm SATA Hard Drive

My computer can run Crysis on Very High, I'm sure it's not the graphical settings on this game.

I'm guessing it has to do with the fact that I'm always loading textures outside of the map, but my computer should be able to handle it. If it couldn't, I'm sure no computer that was out at the time the game was out could handle it, so there has to be a fix, I just can't find it.

Please help.

Some info on the Game Installation:
Which Version Did you buy?
Did you mod the game?
Have you tried running on minimum video settings?
Did you install from the Original DVD?
Are you playing with that Original DVD in the Drive?

I bought it from a site called https://www.greenmangaming.com/
I haven't modded it, as this website came with the patched version, and unable to mod.
Yes, I've tried all different settings.
It came as a download, not the DVD.

Turn off the Frame Limiter and also download the latest version of your drivers. smile.gif

All drivers are up to date, and I've tried frame limiter on and off.
