My best guess is that the game is unable to set the video mode properly, try reducing the resolution before launch.

How do you get out of the 'black screen'?

Im done installing my idate games but everytime i open it no compatible 3d device was always ive seen on my screen


Hi,
It means you have to upgrade the video card on your desktop.
Check the requirements to play the games you installed. If the requirements did not meet by your desktop either look for another game or upgrade necessary hardware to run it.

Hope that helps you out!

Check the system requirements for the game and make sure your system meets the requirements. Also make sure you have all the latest drivers installed on your system.

When i download a game game wont launch only happens with certain games can u explain please and thank you


The game probably won't launch because your computer does not meet minimum requirements to run the game. For example the latest direct x,
or other requirements.

Graphic card


the pc you are using probably has onboard video and not a seperate dedicated AGP graphics card, which needs atleast 64MB of memory and T & L support, so check the card before you buy, if you already have an AGP card fitted it may not support T & L
