Trouble with SAMP

Post by Stucc » Tue Mar 14, 2017 12:22 am

I got a new PC with:
8gb ram
i3
GT 730

I think that's enough to run GTA SA and SAMP.
I've downloaded GTA thru the same link I always do. I tried it, and I can only play for like 10 minutes then my game freezes forcing me to restart my PC. I can't start task manager. I can't also alt tab when I'm in game. I can alt tab like two times, and when I do it the third time and get back IG. My screen freezes. I tried another link it had done the same. I changed windows it has done the same. I can't play from like November. HELP

I'm not to fancy with computer's but I've done some research for you (Possibilities):
■ Over Heating?
■ Virus?
■ Ram Issues?
■ Something misplaced in build?
■ Try reformatting your whole PC, removing everything

Do not continuously keep restarting your PC, I'm sure it's not to good for (it's) long-term health

If you can't find a solution, I really suggest taking your computer to a local company that fixes PC's, something could be wrong within the inner-build, but try the possibilities up top first.

Did you get it brand new ? Like you set up everything by yourself or you had it second handed?

do you have the resolution at 1920x1080 ATM? Try playing at 800x600 or something a bit lower than 1920.
