hi. I just got my san andreas today and i installed it properly and everything. When i double click the icon to run it it shows a cd icon and a little box comes up and says "cannot find 800x600x32 video mode. Has any1 else had this.

My system specs:

Intel(R)Celeron 1000MHz (1GHz)
Microsoft XP Home edition with service pack 2
DirectX 9.0c
Intel(R) 82815 graphics controller (32MB)

My PC meets the requirements apart from the graphics card but people have been playing this game with a 32MB graphics card.

Thanks in advance for your help

Hello .

If someone is still suffering from this problem , Here's a simple but effective fix !

Firstly , on the desktop , Right click and choose "Graphic Properties" (There will be an Intel icon near it) So click on Graphic properties that has Intel icon near it .

Next , Click on "Display" tab . Click on "Custom Resolutions" .

There will be a warning . Just continue by pressing "Yes" .

Under "Add" tab , Enter the following .

In width box : 800
In height box : 600
In refresh rate box : 60

That's all you need to do . Just click "Add" button located in the bottom right corner and add it . Close the graphic properties .

Open GTA Sanandreas and Enjoy . Thank me later

(Note , you can change the resolution in > Settings > Display Settings > Advanced Display Settings > Resolution)

100% working way

check if your friend has gta sa and it works in his pc or not if works do this on ur friends pc local disk c folder 'windows'.
3.u will find a folder in it name 'Microsoft.NET'or 'NET.Framework'.
4.copy that folder in ur pendrive. open ur pc abd copy that folder in windows folder of ur pc and copy the folder from ur pen drive to windows folder(don't forget to backup ur folder).
6.there will b a setup in one of that folder install it
