GTA San Andreas Laptop Glitch??

  1. Hi,

    I have recently installed GTA San Andreas on my laptop for fun on the go when I don't have a connection to play WoW with.
    GTA works fine on my desktop but on my laptop I can't control the view at all. I should be able to left click and mouse around any direction but instead it just looks dead ahead in the default direction even if I am running another way! I have searched their sites and could find nothing related to this. My laptop is XP Pro SP2, 3.4 PIV, 1gb ram, stripped 7200rpm 60gb drives, Nvidia Go w/ 512mb, and an optical wireless mouse(have tried 3 different mice/configurations for above issue) Any help will be greatly appreciated :approve:

    I dont think GTA supports Laptop cards ( or even nVidia GO series )

    try doing this:

    Go to www.systemrequirementslab.com and run the test for GTA: SA

    If you get recommended then go to nVidia and download the current nvidia display drivers that are supported by your card

    If failed then I guess your card isnt supported by GTA:SA
