... almost always this seems to work well.
Glad you got yours working well even if thru windowed mode.
Sometimes it's the simple solutions that elude us. Glad it's working as well.
I don't recall ever having to stay in Windowed mode to play something when this has happened to me. Most games that don't have a detect hardware feature start in the lowest possible resolution setting when you boot them up the first time and sometimes it's one that's just not compatible with a card. Mine doesn't like 640 x 480 at all and won't display it. There are a couple of common resolutions between that and 1920 x 1080 it doesn't like as well, but I don't recall what they are exactly offhand.
Like I said, it's just that the default resolution is something either my GPU or Screen doesn't like. Once I can get to the game menus I can change it to something that works for my GPU or Screen and it runs fine in Fullscreen mode after that.
