Black Screen with new computer

I bought a new powerful computer, the game does not start, black screen. Is there a solution to the problem?

Greetings from Hell! And welcome to our forum.

Thank you for reaching out to us. Have you tried updating your graphics card after you got the new hardware?

If possible, also check windows for the latest updates as well.

We await your reply.

Hello, Mayra!
The latest drivers are installed. Other games also run without problems…
Windows 10 also updated.

Thank you for the additional information. Can you tell us if you performed a fresh install of the game on the new hardware or if the game was already on a hard drive that was ported to it?

Installed the game again, even tried to do it several times just in case

Hello! That’s indeed very odd.

Was the Windows also on a fresh install? Can you also share from what store did you purchase your copy of the game?

Yes, Windows is new. Steam

Hello again,

Can you please share the MS Info log?

In order to generate an MSInfo file please follow the steps below:
1 - Press Win+R and in the displayed dialog box type “msinfo32”
2 - It should show a new screen called “System information” where underneath it should display “File”, click “File” while “System Summary” is highlighted and then “Export”
3 - Name your file as you see fit and save it to an easy-to-find location
4 - Send that file our way

Additionally, can you provide more details about what happens next after the screen blackens out? Are you still able to leave the game or access the task manager, or does it freeze the system completely?

We await your reply.

Good afternoon!
File as an attachment. An endless black screen appears, the download does not go any further. The system does not freeze, I can access the task manager or open the in-game steam overlay.


Have you tried to run the .exe file as an admin?

The following line suggests several different potential issues. Including outdated drivers/OS, corrupt files, or even compatibility with the system.

Can you confirm the hard drive where the game is installed is also new and freshly installed? If any files were left behind on an old installation this could be the issue.

Also, have you tried to use the “verify game files” on Steam? You can find it by:

  • right-clicking the game in your Steam library > Properties > Local files > Verify integrity of game files…

We hope this helps.

Unfortunately, neither running in administrator mode nor checking the integrity of the cache helped with the solution of this problem.

Thank you for letting us know.

We just released an update for the game. Before we proceed with this, could you please update your version and check if the issue still persists?

We appreciate your patience and understanding. :metal: :slight_smile:

Yes…It’s still black.

Hello again,

Thank you for all the files so far. There’s another one we would like to take a look at:

Press windows key + R > type: dxdiag > press Ok 

Once it finishes running please save the txt file and share it with us.

Thank you once more for your patience while we try to best assist you.

Hello, if you have nvidia, try to disable G-Sync


Something was wrong with my BIOS settings. Everything is great now, thanks!
