Mouse not working in GTA San Andreas PC – Fixed

You don’t need to worry if your mouse is not working while playing GTA San Andreas on your PC (Windows 10/7/8/XP); there are numerous solutions available to fix this issue. In the following, I have presented two methods to resolve the problem. Please refer to the details below.

GTA San Andreas was released in 2004 by Rockstar Games, and it is now in the category of old games. However, at present, the GTA San Andreas definitive edition is available on the market, which is the latest version of GTA San Andreas. Old GTA San Andreas is now replaced by the GTA San Andreas definitive edition. If you still have their older version, you may face a mouse-not-working problem.

In the GTA San Andreas definitive edition, generally, this problem does not arise.


After starting the GTA San Andreas game, the following problem may arise:

  • The mouse cursor is moving, but when I click on any option, the click is not working. ( Tip: At the time of this problem, you can select options by using the keyboard enter button and arrow buttons.)
  • Not moving the camera when I move my mouse while driving or walking.

If you have all these problems and want to fix them, just follow the below methods, which I have given on this page.

How to Fix

Here, I have provided two working methods to solve this problem. You can use any method to solve this problem. If the first method does not work for you, you can try the second method. However, the first method is far better than the second method

Method 1: Paste DINPUT8.DLL into the game folder

  1. Download DINPUT8.DLL from here. (Only download this version, If it does not work on your PC, you can try other versions as well.)
  2. Now, go to the location where you downloaded DINPUT8.DLL, right-click on it, and click on Copy to copy that file.
  3. Go inside the folder of – GTA San Andreas game.
  4. After coming to the game folder, right-click on the empty space and click on Paste to paste the file in the game folder.
  5. Now start the game. Enjoy.

Method 2: Use only one Processor

  1. Launch GTA San Andreas.
  2. Now minimize the game.
  3. Now press – CTRL + Shift +ESC at the same time to open Task Manager.
  4. Right-click on “gta_sa.exe” from the Processes tab and then click on – Go to Details.
  5. Now again, right-click on “gta_sa.exe” and then click on set affinity.
  6. A new small window will open; untick all processors.
  7. Now Select only one processor – CPU 1 and untick all
  8. Done! Open the minimized GTA San Andreas game.
  9. Problem Fixed: Mouse working! Enjoy!


Using any method, you can solve the problem. The first method is much better than 2nd method because, in the second method, you have to do all those steps again and again to fix the problem whenever you start the game, but if you use the first method, you only need to do them once.
