    Exclamation Same Problem here

    I run a:
    Intel Core 2 Extrem (QX9650) 3,0 GHz
    8 GB RAM
    GeForce 285 GTX
    system and also updated the drivers for the card but i also get this error.

    Fatal DirectX error!
    Code: 17
    Resault: 0x80070057: E_INVALIDARG

    Anyone any idea what it could be or how to avoid it?
    I can play till (well you cant call it play at all) i catched the guy with my PDA then it crashes and throw me on the Desktop.
    And , of course, i wont reinstall my system for a stupid game.
    Still in germany we can give back games if they dont run. God bless the laws.
    Anyhow i would prefer an answer that makes me play the game instead of any other solution.
    Maybe somthing offical?

    Maybe this works for you too...

    Well i searched every possible forum now and did not really get an answer.. some ppl also told me i need a new grafik card... sure...
    Anyway...
    I worked it out (and strange i had this problem once b4) as followed:
    I deleted the HDD content of the game via Steam (right click on it and delete game)
    and afterwards installed it without the disc, just only via steam.
    Restart afterwards... and see.. now it runs...
    Dont ask me why... i really got no idea... it was the same for me with Metro 2033.
    Both games installed a driver after installing from CD and never really worked then.
    After installing from steam without a cd they work fine.
    Anyhow... maybe you wanna try this way...

    Thumbs Up Just Cause 2 I have got the fix for everyone

    I have got the ULTIMATE fix for Just cause 2 all you have to do is down the bottom

    1: get a crack only if you are using steam version. Any crack would do but I prefer this one:

    2: Watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BloR6CzR8zE

    It worked for me so I hope it works for you too and don't forget to comment me if it works.
