    Grahpic problems on my GTA san andreas
    I was playing GTA fine on my computer using a nividia geforce4 5200fx grahpic card till I updated the drivers for it.

    After that when I launched the game it gave me a 'cannot display video mode' error. Does anyone know how to rectify this problem. Thanks a bunch

    Perhaps in the next patch for San Andreas they will resolve that problem, but for now if you are using Windows XP you could do a restore point for before you updated your drivers or maybe your video card program (I'm not familiar with the video card) will let you roll back to the old drivers... otherwise San Andreas might have to be reinstalled.

    Also be sure you are opening the game in the correct resolution for your screen (ex. 800x600, 1024x768, etc.)

    The game is awesome but I've noticed it certainly has its gliches. Good Luck!

    wzartv is correct - you should be able to roll back the drivers to the previous ones. Head over to Device Manager (right-click on My Computer, click on Properties, select Hardware tab), find your video card in Display Adapters, right-click on it on select Properties, then select the Driver tab, click on Roll Back Driver.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the help but the problem is that I can't seem to rollback to the previous drivers. There just isn't a restore point at that.

    Also the new drivers is giving me problems affecting my video performance. Like watching movies. The color is very screwed.

    Is using system restore the only way to rollback the drivers. If so I am in trouble.
