ok, basically i just run the game, and it just comes up with a black screen that says "unable to display this video mode" it works fine in other games and everything else, it only does this when i launch SA. no mods are installed, used to be but i uninstalled and reinstalled. it worked just fine the last time i played, was a while ago, but no changes were made since then. any suggestions?

Check whether your screen resolution is supported by your monitor.

And please post your system specs.

im up to date in drives, ive got dx9, my resolution is set to 1024x768, windows xp, nvidia geforce 4 mx 4000, and nothing has changed since the last time i played, it played just fine last time. so its none of those things, but what is this ".set" file?

Edit: also, forgot to mention, the game DOES LAUNCH, i can hear the sound in the background, i just cant see anything because of this.

This is the .set file

Try deleting it and see if it will work

It is in My Documents -> GTA San Andreas User Files

Did you try running the game in windows 98 compatibility mode ?
