San Andreas problem (Legal)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, got a problem here

I have installed GTA:San Andreas and all went well. I played it sometime and then turned off PC.
Now I have a problem, wenn I try to run it, it doesn't start. The mouse becomes into an hourglass for half- a second and then becomes normal again. So it doesn't start.
But this isn't the oddest, I can run it perfectly on an other accaunt I made. I have 4 accounts: on 3 including mine it doesn't work. The other it does, but that's brand new.

How come??

I had a similar problem and this is what Rockstar tech support told me to do, go to My Computer, then to your C:/ drive, Documents and Settings, whatever user name you have, My Documents, and there should be a GTASA User Files folder or something, open that and just delete the gta_sa.set file and open up the game.

Note: All of your settings and controlls will be erased but your saved games will be intact.

I had the same problem. The way I got round it is by turning off my desktop theme, I had downloaded and installed a skin pack for my desktop from Alienware's website which I think is based on WindowBinds. It was this application that was causing the conflict so I have to change my dektop theme back to Windows XP's default every time I want to have a go on GTA: SA.

Sometimes it can also be corrected by updating your optical drive firmware.
