Just Cause 2

Was wondering if anyone knew why the game freezes on my PC. Sometime i can run it for an hr, and it won't freeze. Other times maybe 2 minutes.
It locks up, then windows says the program has crashed. I have to ctrl+alt+del to get out of it.
Any ideas would be most helpful.


My computer is:
AMD: Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2991 MHz
Mobo: Gigabyte M57SLI-S4 v.2
RAM: 4GB Mushkin DDR2 PC2-6400
OS: Win 7 64bit
VC: EVGA 8800 GTS 320MB

  2. pretty much yeah
  3. Could be overheating issues or a PSU going bad. I would first monitor the temps of your CPU and GPU in the background while playing JC2 and see where they go after 30 minutes or so.
  4. temps seem to be within normal range, and the PSU is about a year old.
    I'd hope it isn't failing now. Its also over-rated for my system... so it wouldn't be too stressed
  5. get a new GPU man..a gts 250 green is great..its safe too..low chances of overheating..
  6. if i get a new one,
    i want something a little more future proof...
  7. gtx 460...

    you should consider getting a new PSU..preferrably an 800W...with corsair,enermax,cougar or any brands that are known to ensure the your graphic cards are safe from getting barbqd...you should get GTX 400 series cards or Ati 5000 series if you want something future proof....
  9. i have an 800W Watts BFG ES Series Power Supply
