Uninstall/reinstall the game fully and properly. Install the latest v1.01 patch.

Have you told the game to run in windows 98 compatability mode? (right click on exe or shortcut, properties, compatability tab)

The problem is that some how the .exe files (the icon with some grovestreet person on it and a orange backround) has a corrupted script.If you wanna fix this delet that .exe, download a no-cd patch (i cant tell you where because its aginst the rules) and paste the no-cd .exe in the gta folder.Probley the origanal .exe has a misplaced value,happens when you install mods.if you tryed reinstalling it and it does the same thing probley the .exe is locked and even though you reintsall it,it will always be the same.So bassicly just get a version 1.00 no-cd patch(make sure its ENGLISH) i hope this helps

Check your Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Second Edition) DVD disc set for errors by using CDCheck: http://www.kvipu.com/CDCheck/download.php. If no errors were found, then...




1. Uninstall the game in "Add/Remove Programs" (you may have to restart).

2. Delete C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\San Andreas.

3. Go to Recycle Bin and empty it.

4. Reinstall the game and include everything the installer has to offer.

5. Delete [.set] file and launch SA.



i think it is my graphics card. Yet again another forum which cant help me 

I'll go look up drivers...
