Question about Televison & Video
Computer is working fine. when I go to play video games, the screen goes blank while the game music is in the background. The blank screen says invalid format
I was getting the same problem with my lcd tv. I was using a DVI to hdmi cable to connect the pc to the tv. I switched to a vga cable and I was able to finally get into the game. Once you get into the game make sure you change all the video settings to be compatible with your tv i.e. resolution for a 720p set should be 1366x768 on the game resolution, and you should also change the refresh rate to 60hz in the game if that is the max. on your tv.
Once you do this, you can then put your hdmi cable back in and get into the game. Every game I install I have to first run using the vga cable, and then switch to HDMI.
