How much memory you have available on your computer?

A pagefile is a special area on the disc where the OS stores some information when it runs low on memory...

Does your PC actually meet the minimum specs stated on the game's packaging?

Yes it dose. Ran a test when i was instaling it and it was fine only thing failed was the Page file. I have had this error before on a game named Diablo 2 LOD i had to build a new computer to play that.

Well here are the requirements for the game:

Min: XP SP2 or Win2000; Intel P4 2ghz/AMD xp 2200+; 512mb ram; 128mb nVidia 5700/radeon 9600; directx9.0c

Recommended: Intel Core 2 Duo E6400/AMD athlon 64 X2 4200+; 1Gb ram or more; 256mb directx 9.0c nVidia 7900/radeon X1850

So I would guess that you would need a more ram and a faster CPU.

It is one EXTREMELY hungry game!
