Today I bought Far Cry 4 for Uplay, via humblebundle.com. So far it's been nothing but a nightmare. When I start up the game, I get loads of black screens that I can only get passed by alt-tatbing out and back in. Once I get into the game, cutscenes also suffer from black screen, and I have to alt-tab again every time I want to progress even the smallest bit. As soon as I get control of the character, in the mansion, I can explore the first couple of levels, but I'm stuck unless I alt-tab again. Then the game triggers the audio cues and the objective update. Next cutscene. Again, once I get control of my character, when I need to run to the truck, I run out into the courtyard, there is no truck, nor any enemies. I alt-tab, and bam, everything appears.
Ubisoft also announced that it's fixed a bug for the PC version of Far Cry 4 that caused the game to crash and go directly to a black screen when external USB devices were attached. Fans discovered they could fix the problem by disabling USB devices and select drivers, but Ubisoft has a more official fix in the pipeline.
A fix for black screen issues on PC will be released from tomorrow for Far Cry 4, Ubisoft has announced. Unfortunately, for PlayStation 3 owners who purchased the digital version and are experiencing corrupted files, the news isn't as good.
The most common Far Cry 4 Errors that people encounter are random crashes, shadow issues, and black screen errors. Because of these errors, you might not be able to play the game, but we compiled a guide below on how to fix them.
If the black screen issue was caused due to a small glitch, you can try to fix it by switching to windowed mode. This workaround has been proven useful by many gamers and you can give it a shot. Simply press ALT+Enter to switch to windowed mode while in full screen.
After rebooting your PC, launch Far Cry 6 to see if the black screen issue still occurs. If not, you can try to enable services one by one until you find the problematic software. Then restart your computer to apply the changes.
I have same problem my rx 480 8gb nitro+ just freeze and turn black screen and i have to force my role system to restart, and I just installed hdmi and the audio, I did not install the others, but it is only temporary until a driver comes out that helps, since I did everything just to ease the crash and the black screen (freezing) we have to wait for amd to solve soon, because I have this board for two years and only now have these problems that give me a headache, compared to before my fps are really low I do not know what to do AMD FIX THIS.
I hope it will be resolved soon because this is causing me headaches, I get too discouraged and I can not do anything besides play for half an hour and the screen freeze and it turns black, it's sad but we have to wait and find other temporary forms until solve or change to nvidia, which is something I do not want to do.
Hi All, I had this problem with my Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB. I tested all the "fixes" suggested in different forums / YT channels, none of them worked. What did work however was manual tuning of WattMan and fans settings in the Adrenaline drivers. I increased max power consumption % of the GPU to the max (20%) and I also manually tuned the fans' curves (from factory set max of 85% to the full 100%). While gaming the card did become more audible due to the higher speed of fans - but most importantly since I did that I have not had a single black screen crash. Hope this solution works for you, too. By the way, shame on AMD that they have not fixed that for so many years, although the issue has been well and widely known. Cheers, M.
I am having the same issue like everyone here (I have an MSI RX480 4GB). The exact nature of the problem is that at random times, I get a blank screen with just one color. If I click the mouse the signal is lost momentarily (black screen) and then desktop comes back again for a brief time (1-3 seconds). Then the cycle starts again (blank->black->desktop). Sometimes after several cycles, the PC restarts itself. If I remove the AMD divers (I am using the AMD cleaning utility for this) the problem is fixed, but when either Windows 10 or me installs any AMD driver the problem is back. I tried tinkering with AMD settings but nothing seemed to work. The new 13.1 driver version that released doesn't help either.
I'm having the same issue with a new computer. I bought the pieces new and asked the store to build it. First days were fine, but then these (mostly) black screen issues started. Also get the message when restarting, tried DDU and the 2 most recent drivers (recommended and optional). So I connected the computer to the TV via HDMI and, like you, it had no problems as long as it stayed there (only for an hour or so). I don't even know what to try anymore. I might reinstall drivers without the Radeon Settings or even reinstall Windows 10.
Agreed, because after returning my 570 and waiting for my 590, I have my old GPU, an NVIDIA 750Ti, installed and there were no issues in terms of freezing or black screen. Games didn't run the best, but that's because it isn't the best GPU - it's also 4 years old. I'm going to say with confidence it's an AMD issue rather than a Windows issue unless AMD and Windows are having a spat.
When I upgraded to Yosemite, I started having display issues, as in a totally black screen. Computer would work in the background, i.e. iTunes or video would be audible and I could quit programs with cmd-Q, but black screen. An outboard display worked fine.I reformatted and installed OS 10.8 and the problem is gone. I will give it a while and back up my data, then try Mavericks.My iMac is well within the parameters for Yosemite and clearly it is not my hardware, at least in a conventional sense. 2b1af7f3a8
