I have a home made computer with intel inside pentium prosessor 4 30gb Cdrive but with only 10gb free and i have unistalled all my computer games. I have just brought a game called just cause and it is massive. i will click new game then it will load for a second then freeze then say no signal. it has happend before with other games and thing but when we toook the photo off our desktop it nearly stopped. we have a h750 plasma screen so we are sure that its not the screen. this same thing also happend with the sims 2.

when the just cause is installed there is only 5% of the Cdrive free what should i do.

WE may just get a new computer

Sounds like a memory problem.

What kind of video card do you have? Today's games require exorbitant amount of RAM and very powerful graphics cards.

How much RAM do you have in the system?

Plus, tell me what you have your swap file set at. The swap file is called "Virtual Memory", and - presuming you are running Windows XP - you can find that information by going to your Control Panel, click on "System", select the "Advanced" tab, and then click the "Settings" button in the "Performance" box, and then again click the "Advanced" tab. You'll see your Virtual Memory setting toward the bottom of that box, and should be set to at least 1.5 times the amount of RAM you have installed.

It's possible you may need to seriously increase the amount of RAM on your computer.

It sounds like your vid card can't handle the game. According to the game specs, your need at least 256MB of RAM on your video card alone. If your card has enough RAM, it could be your vid card drivers. Check the Just Cause site for any patches or updates for your brand of video card.
Right click your desktop, then choose Properties, Settings tab, then click the Advanced button. It will tell you what video card you have and how much RAM is on it.

You'll want at least 1GB of system RAM too as well as a larger hard drive.

According to what I found, that game uses has a Memory Usage = 429KB Minimum. So we are talking HIGH end memory and graphics card here. Liz
