My PC version of Gta:sa once worked on my laptop, and ran fine with no game lag what so ever. But recently, it's been absolutely horrible. I can't even stare at the ground and run without lagging. My desktop which was 10 years old could do that better than this. I was wondering if anyone could assist me in fixing my graphics or something so my game runs good as new or better? Thanks.

- Check the Task Manager before you run the game. CPU usage should be 0-2%. If it's higher, find out which process is using the extra CPU time and kill it.

- Laptops can easily overheat. Because a laptop's CPU, video chip, core logic, and hard drive are all crammed beneath the keyboard, heat can build up very quickly. Any dust on the heatsink(s) and fan can cause the CPU and video chip to lower their processing speed in order to stay cool. If you haven't blasted the dust out of your notebook lately, you should probably do so.
