My problem is this. My GTA San Andreas wont start. when i "Start" the game (when i click the shortcut or .EXE) Nothing happens, okay the startup sequence runs for about a second and then it shuts off. No warnings, no pop-ups, completely nothing, it just shuts down.
I already tried reinstalling the game with removing everything related to the game from my computer. No avail.
I tried running as administrator. No avail.
I in fact tried the Compatibility mode(s), 256 screencolors only, the 640 x 480 resolution, remove themes, desktop compositing (or something like that, my windows is not in English) and display scaling as well. no avail.
I tried deleting the .set files. No avail.
I tried all of the updates, but none of them worked.
Updating the video card is not the solution either, because the other one of them gets always corrupted when i update it (Mobile intel ® 4 series express chipset family)
I'm also trying to run the game with an original disk with the original disk drive.
Now.. there should be all...
My computer specs:
Operating system: Windows 7
Video/Graphics card: Mobile intel ® 4 series express chipset family & nVidia geoforce 9600M GT
Graphics memory: ??? (WTF is that?)
Processor: Intel® Core2 Duo CPU
RAM: 4,00 GT (2,96 GT useable)
The game HAS ran before on my computer, so i know it meets the system requirements, although back then i had windows vista.. but no way in hell i'm decreasing my OP back to Vista again, coz' i think the game has ran on windows 7 few times as well.
That's it. let's hope i didn't forgot anything.
