This is a dumb question but are all drivers up to date?
if so try switching the theme in personalize to classic or windows basic and try launching again.
windows 7 tries to do this automatically but sometimes it causes problems

General question: Anyone have steam version of san andreas and can play samp??
Me
Benny, how do you do the work around if SAMP says it not supported? the version 1 crack? how do you use the mods?

i do too i did downgrade gta sa steam version to 1.0 and installed samp changed gta_sa to gta_sa x when you downgrade you get GTA_SA and samp change to gta_sa and when you open it via steam gta sa it will open samp and it will say you are in gta_sa on steam i get crash because i dont have all files from gta_sa downgrade is 20mb or more but all files are 1,5gb if i am not wrong

I have turned off every available option imaginable and every combination possible (that I could think of and by looking on websites) then trying to load it, nothing changed. and yes, all possible graphic, network, USB, PCI, etc..etc.. drivers are up to date..  I even download windows xp mode and virtual pc.

I honestly think it has to do with something in SP1, which (I swear) I dont think I had before reinstallation

Carl, pay attention to the following sentence: I do not have another windows 7 license to install it a second time, so stop telling to reinstall and format!!

You want to buy a harddrive just because gtasa not running? It's obviously not a hardware problem since everything else works for you. Did you try to install another graphics card driver? Also, did you install any driver for the display/monitor itself? Or it just runs with stock windows display driver?

I want to buy a new drive to install windows on because I dont think I have enough room on my external drive to save everything I have currently on my hard drive. I can then install windows on that drive, maybe 40GB- 80GB drive for less then $50.. perhaps a 32-64 GB SSD.

why would I install a different graphics driver to the one I actually have at the moment?, and yes I installed a monitor driver that came with it. I dont think it runs from the stock windows driver.

i will try hobos method later as my sister is in the hospital and we have my nieces over, no real time to 'work' on this while they are here.
