GTA SA not working


Recommended Posts

So I bought San Andreas from Steam and I played it once. After I quit, and tried to reopen, it would go to a black screen then back to desktop. The only solution is to delete the GTA User folders, which I don't want to to save my save file. I have windows 7 and tried compatability with XP, and nothing. I think it has something to do with my computer, here's my specs.

AMD Phenom II X4 820 Processor 2.8 GHz

4.0 GB RAM

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit

ATI Radeon HD 5450


Please help...

I've tried uninstalling, re-installing.

Compatibility mode.

And deleting User Folder which worked, but I can't keep save =(

Is there anything I can do???

You're in the wrong forum, post here


As for your problem, have you recently updated your graphics driver?

First try to Delete ONLY the file ending in .set (i.e. the GTA_SA.set file). Deleting the entire file is radical.


If you tried to MOD the game, that would be a part of the problem as V3 (Steam) can't be Modded.
