So i recently got a new monitor which is nice, but when i start tf2 my screen goes black.
When i start tf2 my screen flickers between gray and black a couple times,
then the loading screen shows up: http://gyazo.com/24814389262c44872bca834e286381c5
then my screen flickers again and the screen goes black
i can move my cursor and i can hear that i am clicking the different buttons in the main menu. And the screen goes back to normal when i tab out of tf2 but it goes black again when i click on the tf2 icon on the taskbar
I've read a few discussions about people having the same problem and some people suggested this solution:
- In windows, switch to a low desktop resolution (1280 x 1024)
- Start tf2, this should now get into the menu.
- set tf2 resolution to desired values
- close tf2
- in windows, set desktop resolution back to normal
- start tf2, from now on this should start up in proper resolution and without black screen
but it didnt work because after ive changed my desktop resolution my screen would still go black after i started tf2.
So i figured some of you might have experienced this problem and i thought you might know how to fix it.
The problem doesnt occour when i start tf2 in windowed mode, so I'm wondering if theres any downsides of running tf2 in windowed mode. Altough i would prefer to run tf2 in fullscreen
heres my specs:
edit:just changed my monitor refreshrate to 144hz
Any help is appreciated, thanks have a good day.
