hello, all I just recently bought GTASA for PC and I'm having some trouble. I'm running an AMD athlon 2800+ with XP Home SP1 512mb DDR SDRAM 16x max dvd rom The game is a dvd only. A radeon 9800 pro grfx Card . Two 120 GB hard drives and a nvidia nforce sound card. The main problem is when I get in a car and drive. the video and audio skips and jerks. Also during the cut scenes the Dialouge finshes way before the scene and the subtitles end. sometimes I don't even here some of the dialouge that the subtitles show. I installed the latest drivers for both sound and grfx cards. The Grfx card went fine but when I loaded the latest audio driver and ran the game I barely played for a minute before my whole computer shutdown and rebooted itself. It did this several times plus I still had the problem. So I had to rollback to The previous audio driver In order to run the game longer than a Minute. I also wrote to Rockstar Tech support and the told me to update my drivers which I had and the also told me that I might have to update my FIRMWARE for my dvd drive. Now I'm not new to copmuters but I don't know anything about FIRMWARE. Where to find it or how to install it. I have been to some websites that talk about firmware and something about flashsomething and they say it's very risky to do this as it could damage the drive. If anyone knows anything about firmware or has any other suggestions I would greatly appericiate it. BTW my dvd drive name JLMS XJ-HD166S and I have messed with the hardware acceleration and the in game options With no luck. Thanks again for your help.
