Black Screen

Published on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 By markharper80 In The Video Game Machine

The game launches, pick the genre, character and name the game, then when we hit the Play button and go to the game screen, the transition never completes and its just a black screen. We wait on that screen for a while and nothing happens. We have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and rebooting the PC. 

This is on my sons computer which is a very basic intro PC. Here are the specs but resource monitor shows very low usage. In addition to this we did just add EVGA 1GB GeForce 8400 GS DirectX 10 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
