GTA San Andreas won't open

Question

Junior.

Hey guys, I'm having a problem with GTA SA after I changed my videocard / processor. The problem is: it won't start at all, there's no process in task manager, nothing. This is what I tried:

- Delete gtasa.set in my documents.

- Put compatibility on Windows 98/ME

 

These are my configs:

Win 7 Ultimate x86

Intel Celeron D 2.55GHZ

ATI Radeon HD 4670 1GB

1.5GB RAM

 

As said, it was working before, my old PC was a Celeron 420 1.6 and a Onboard intel chipset.

 

If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

After making driver/OS, or other changes you must delete the gta_sa.set file, as it no longer contains correct config data. This file is created each time you successfully close a gaming session.

There was never a .set file in My Documents/GTA SA User Files, as I formated my PC.

Yes, it is from a DVD. Reinstalling does nothing. I though it could be the drivers, but I doubt as I am running Resident Evil 5 and some other "heavy" games right now.

Did you install with Admin Privileges? If not have you Set it to Admin Privileges?

Did you install to the C:/ Drive?

I tried giving it admin previleges, but still it won't open. It's installed in C:\.
