My apologies the clarification request and that I did not read the topic for this post was " Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for Windows" :P

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas also uses Securom.

Please read the below mentioned. The same solution which I had posted for the game Juiced.

The solution is the same for all games using Securom copy protectionsoftware.


Securom is a copy protectionsoftware that sometimes conflicts with any background applications,multiple disc drives, virtual drives, USB storage devices (Pen drivesand USB Hard drives).

This however can be solved once you submit a analysis file to the Securom Support.

To extract the Analysis file you can follow the below mentioned.

Open Game folder
Locate "GTA_SA.EXE" file and then right-click on it context menu will appear
Select "Launch Analysis" within that menu
After the selection a disclaimer window will appear on your screen, to proceed, click the "YES" button
This 'analysis' will now generate an 'AnalysisLog.sr0' file within the root directory your C: drive.

Go to your "C" drive to locate the "AnalysisLog.sr0" file and zip the file compression utility programs such as WinZip, Winace or Pkzip

-Submit the Zip file to: support@securom.com for evaluation along with "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas " in subject line.

Securomsupport will then analyze the file for conflicts and send you a newexecutable file. Once you have the new file, extract and paste theexecutable file in the root directory of the game.

What can I do to reboot new hard drive


So a new drive will of course, have nothing on it at all. Lets just say you are installing windows 7. With the windows 7 disk in the optic drive as the power is turned on - check for boot options at start up or hit your Del key to get in to the bios. Search bios for boot priorities - Set optical CD/DVD drive as primary (first boot) Make sure you can boot to the windows disk.. Once it sees the disk in the drive - follow the directions and the disk with start the install process. AFTER your windows os has loaded, you may need to find orphan drivers that did not load with the windows disk. You'll have to search Dell.com for proper drivers. Oh, huge - If the computer is running SATA 1 - Pentium 4 to first generation Core 2. You may need to hit your F4 key to add other drivers at the very beginning of the windows install.
The drivers most the time, show as a raid driver, but this is needed or your system will never install - The Hard drive will never be found.

Hope this helps.
Have a great night..

Im trying resore my acer back to factory settings


Did you press 5 times

If you do NOT have a copy of this disc, skip to step 3 for further instructions. Once you restart your computer, a screen will appear with the words. Press Any Key to Boot From CD. Once you press a key, a screen will come up containing instructions to format your hard drive and restore the original factory settings. Follow the on-screen prompts to finish the installation. Once the restore is complete, remove your Recovery CD from the disk drive so that your computer does not try to boot from the CD again. Restart your computer to complete the restore. 3. If you do not have a System Restore disk, then your computer should have a recovery partition on your hard drive, separate from the main partition of the disk. Unplug all external devices and restart your computer. When the loading screen comes on with the Windows logo, press Alt+F10 together five times. This will bring up the system restore menu. Follow the on-screen prompts to restore your computer back to the factory settings Hope this helps.

I inserted a game into my Acer (Windows 7) computer CD Drive... Although I cannot seem to get the game to load. Is there any solution, or is my computer just not able to handle those graphics. As soon as...


Well in oder to check if your computer can run the game try this website.
systemrequirementslab
As for getting the game to load from the disk, try going to My Computer and then right clicking on the disc which should show as a D: or E: and choose explore or open. Once you are looking at the files on the disc look for the setup.exe or install.exe. This should install the game and any other dependencies needed if it is able to run on your machine.

I want to reboot and put a new version of windows


The first step you'll need to take is to backup all of your data to a second hard drive or thumb drive. After that it is normally best to get the drivers for the new software for your current machine prior to installing a new OS. Video, chipset, and network drivers will be your main priority. After you have done all this you will need to reboot your machine with the new install disk in the CD tray. From there you will need to hit F12 repeatedly, this should pop up a boot menu which will allow you to choose to boot from your Install disk. After you choose to boot from the CD you will need to hit any key on the keyboard once the prompt "Press any key to boot from CD:" pops up. This will take you to the windows installer and allow you to continue with the installation. Once the disk loads all of the utilities needed you will need to reformat the hard drive by deleting the current partitions. Once this is done simply choose the hard drive to install the OS on and follow the prompts.

Format laptop lenovo y550


Note: Format would delete all of the data(like pictures, documents.) from the computer. Make sure, you back up all of your important data before formating the hard drive.
1. Insert operating system disk. 2. Shut down and restart the computer.As soon as, you restart the computer, start tapping 'Spacebar' key. Now, this would start loading from disk. 3.Hit F8 to accept the license agreement. 4.Hit enter 5. Enter Enter again and follow the on screen instruction and this would format your hard drive.
Note: once you format the hard drive, you would need to install drivers as well. Make sure you have the drivers and utilities disk as well.

I have trouble loading CDs. There is a place to


Make sure you are placing the CDs in the drive with the label side up. If the computer can read DVDs, it can certainly read CDs as well. Once the cd is inserted, wait and the autoplay should start the installation program for the software.

MY DVD/CD DRIVE DOES NOT WORK IT WILL NOT READ THE DISC cannot play dvd,cds or load or make dvds or cds


Open the drawer.
Insert a disk, rotating the disk so that the writing on the face of the disk is "level".
(Imagine a clock-face on the disk; rotate the disk to make the writing go from "9" to "3",
not "10" to "4", nor "12" to "6".)
Close the drawer.
Wait a minute (to see if the disk should automatically start spinning).
Hold down the "Windows-flag" key on your keyboard, and touch (once) the 'E' key.
Wait a few seconds.
Open the drawer.
Is the disk still at the "9-to-3" position?
If so, then the CD-drive has *NOT* read the disk at all, and it needs to be replaced.

Try the above with the same disk in another computer, to see how it _should_ work.

Then, shutdown your computer.
Turn it on.
Look for the message: "Press DEL to enter setup".
Quickly, press the DEL key.
When you see the "setup" menu, press ENTER.
You should see at least 4 similar lines:
AUTO ... AUTO
AUTO ... AUTO
AUTO ... AUTO
AUTO ... AUTO

If you see 'NONE' anywhere, press the TAB key (or the DOWN-arrow key) until that 'NONE' is highlighted, and press PG-UP/PG-DOWN until it changes to AUTO.
Repeat for each 'NONE'.
Press ESC once to return to the "main-menu".

Press RIGHT-arrow and DOWN-arrow to highlight the "Detect Drives".
Press ENTER.
It should auto-detect your CD-drive, within 1 minute.
When it's finished detecting, press ESC.

Use the "arrow" keys to select 'SAVE CHANGES'.
Select it, and save the changes.
Let it reboot.

Now, is your CD-drive working?
Within Windows, hold-down the "Windows" key, and (once) touch the 'E' key.
Do you see an icon for the CD-drive?
If not, then the CD-drive is *NOT* physically-connected (either ribbon-cable or power-cable) to your computer's motherboard.
