LIMBO starts....with just a black screen
- date: December 16, 2011
Anyone have a way to fix this. It's the only game I've ever had issues with.
Bought it on the daily sale a few days ago, loaded it up and all I get is a sound if I press the escape key. I've tried updating directx to the latest (already have it) and I even attempted to run the game in a forced window mode. Still no luck.
I deleted the game folder and reinstalled it - still nothing. Rather annoying, to say the least.
The screen is just black

When I load a game I can see the HUD and unit health bars etc. but I can't see the terrain or units.
I am running windows vista home premium 32 bit
My graphics card is part of a Mobile Intel® GME965 Express Chipset.
I tried verifying the integrity of the game cache and it always has to download a 306 byte file.
I am not sure what this file is but it may well be what is stopping it working.
Someone metioned a problem like this and the solutions were:-
Check to make sure the terrain folder is filled properly.
Update drivers on a NVidia product.(I don't have NVidia but my drivers are up to date).
I really wanted to play this game, any Ideas on how to fix it.
Game won't load, just a black screen with custom mouse pointer
- date: July 16, 2012
Just bought the Fable 3 collection thanks to the sale. I can't load up Fable 3 at all. The window comes up, is totally black, but I can see the custom Fable mouse pointer.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Windows Live Essentials, Games for Windows Live, and even downloading the xlive.dll to put into the folder (since it apparently didn't install off Steam) and still nothing.
Anything I can do?
After loading my save file, the game just leaves me with a black screen.

I got GTA Vice City at the summer sales, and it's been working fine. However, now when I load my save file, it goes through all the motions of loading, it comes up with the "Vice City" screen and the pink loading bar at the bottom. It then makes the sound that the game's loaded, but all i'm left with is a black screen? I believe this happened to my brother on GTA 3 as well.
Any help appreciated.
Black screen upon starting Just Cause 2 help!
- date: August 22, 2013
When I start up Just Cause 2, it just comes up with a black screen - not even an error message from my monitor shows up. And to top it off, I can't Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Alt+F4 out of it - only way out is to reboot my computer.
It's worked fine before - but I recall changing the settings, particularly the texture resolution to "Low" (because my computer is a low-end gaming PC - it was hitting 25FPS most of the time and even 10 when water or lots of detail showed up).
Anything I can do to prevent this happening?
Limbo black screen after loading.
- date: July 20, 2012
So I got this game in a Humble Bundle and never bothered to look at it until last night. Let's just say my experience has been far from enjoyable .
First off, as soon as I launched the game, it would crash with the standard "Limbo has stopped working". I uninstalled it, and re-installed it.
Now, it doesn't crash there, it shows the loading screen for a split second and then the screen goes black.
Thing's I've tried:
-Running in windowed
-Verifying game files
-Changing the resolution
Any other ideas? All other games run fine on my computer, and it's not an issue of being below requirements as I'm miles above them. Limbo runs just fine on my laptop, but I'd rather play it on my desktop.
Start game, just a completely black screen, but sound is playing.

I'm on Windows 7 32bit running an ATI Radeon HD 5700 with updated drivers.
I've googled and looked in the forums but didn't find a problem or solution for this.
Anyone have any ideas on this? Picked it up on the daily sale and starting to think it was a waste of $7.
Enhanced Edition out, no menu, just a black screen and cursor.

This game was working fine when I tried it out a few days ago, the day before the patch... now nothing. I verified game cache and all that, but it still doesn't work.
