    Hello, before I start, I know this has been posted before I just can't find an answer that works!!

    I had the same problem yesterday, When I installed the game. My laptop wouldn't even switch on properly yesterday, That is now fixed and I'm still having game issues.

    I Installed steam then Just Cause, took about 2 hours. It said it was ready to play so I clicked played, A black screen comes up, flashes a few times, the a box comes up.

    Error

    Fatal DirectX error!
    Code: 15
    Result: 0x80070057: E_INVALIDARG

    The game will now exit. Try starting the game with /failsafe if the problem persists

    I have windows 7 Home premium x64

    I'm only 13 so I don't know how to do much on laptops so don't be to harsh please.[​IMG]

    Sorry, but that is just annoying, if you cant help, please don't reply, other forums are a lot faster than this.

    Don't worry about it. Just wanted you to know that it takes time for someone to answer you as the time zones vary so much.
