Delete the gta_sa.set
file that's located in \My Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files
. A new gta_sa.set
file will automatically be generated when you start the game.
After that, you may want to reconfigure your game
settings to the way they were before, but you don't have to. The Game Settings can be changed after you've successfully launched the game.
file contains your settings, and whenever something is changed on your computer, you usually have to delete that file in order for San Andreas to function again.
file also contains settings that you cannot alter; those settings are based on your computers previous settings, so if any changes have been made to your PC, then sometimes the game won't start, just like the situation you described.
