my case is "Dolphin" + "energy star" PSU.
I also have not very good experience with SP3.. I installed it and many unexpected and mysterious type of errors occurred.. So I uninstalled it and then all things went OK as they were before installing SP3..

Can you get me the Model # and Wattage?
It's most likely not a hardware problem. Try setting the compatibility to Windows 98.
I found a solution,discobered it by myself : first delete the whole user file in my documents,if you want to back up the save file ONLY,just copy it to another folder,after you do this,run gta normaly without the 98 compatibility,it will automaticly create another gta san andreas user file in my documents,run the game and change the display option as you like,quit the game and recopy the backuped save file again to the user files folder in my documents and then run the game normally,it won't crash like this
It can also be caused my mods not well-made.
So beware of that too.
