Your mouse must be causing you to post in the wrong topic.

Geek Speak would be the most appropriate topic for that.

However, since we're already here and before the topic gets locked; unplug your mouse and reboot. Plug it back in, Windows 7 should recognize it. If that doesn't work, I'd go to your control panel --> mouse, readjust your settings.

Are you sure you have checked the options and have selected Keyboard and mouse?
Not accidently turned on the Joystick?

Which, by the way I would suggest that any Player get the GamePad (12 button minimum) to really play the game the way it is meant to be. thumbup.gif


OH, ... and...
Just checking...

You do have the Original Game DVD in the drive?
You are Not using a No-CD Program/crack?
You are Not using a 'backup' copied disc?
You do Not have a Down-Loaded Game? If you do from where?

Yes, double and triple checked that mouse was enabled and not joy stick.
No it is not copied downloaded or anything other than the original game disc

Is your system a Dual or Quad Core?

Found this on the Net:

Maybe it's got something to do with the your CPU. Try changing it.
Start the game, hit Ctrl+Alt+Del (this will minimize the game and opens up Task Manager),
go to Processes, right-click on gta_sa.exe > Set Affinity > Uncheck all except CPU 0.
Now return to the game and see if you can click again.

Mine does. I will sell it to you for $400 due to the mint condition of the system.

I'm also up for bartering.
