    Exclamation Black screen in game

    When I launch a game, they started, but when i created a new game, all I see just black screen, and sound, and if I try to movie in game, thats not doing.
    I play on Win7 64b (by admin) and nvidia 9600GT. I delete all videodrivers, and reinstall a new version, I try play on a minimum settings, and I update directX.
    What I should do?

    Hey there

    Run `eventvwr.msc` and see if you can see anything listed there to give an indication of an error being received

    Got same problem here. Screen can turn black almost at every movie. It happend to me at starting screen(right after disclaimer). Also, it happend to me at first elevator(with doctor Reed). But playing with options( enable/disabe SSAO, DOF, Anti Aliasing) can help a little. So, i overcome that two first cutscenes, but i ALWAYS got black screen at Augmentation of Adam cutscene no matter what. Game still working when in black screen( you can hear sounds and music), but you'll be dropped to a pause menu after ALT+Tab or CTrl+Alt+Delete. If you will try to click main menu or load, game will freez.
    My specs:
    Windows 7 Ultimate x86
    AMD Athlon 64 3800+ x2 2.0 Ghz
    3Gb ram 370 Mhz
    Ati Radeon HD 4850

    Drivers are up to day:
    Catalyst 11.8

    I tried to disable antivirus, renaming dlls, verifying cash. Nothing changed.

    The best way to resolve a problem , is kill the problem

    Bilinear filtring, didnt work(cannot set lower that this). Also, tried to turn off AA, VSync post processing. Didnt work for me. My native resolution is 1280x1024, so i set it to 1024x768(even 800x600), didnt work.

    I have the same problem as Gronkar. After the Augmentation cutscene there is a loading screen after which I get the black screen. I am able to access the pause menu, but if I press "Skip" the game just freezes and I have to kill the proccess manually.

    My PC specs are:

    Q6600 at 2.4 Ghz
    4 GB of DDR 3 RAM
    GeForce 8800GTX
    WinXP 32bit

    My drivers seem to be up to date.

    Had no such problem with the leaked demo.

    Thats kinda solved it. But this is not solution, developers should fix it(in case of fact that beta worked fine)
