Windows 7: Star Wars Battlefront II (from Steam) Runs, but with Black Screen

Star Wars Battlefront II (from Steam) Runs, but with Black Screen

About a week ago, I got Star Wars Battlefront II on Steam. It's been playing just fine until yesterday.

(I'm not sure if this is the cause, but it *might* be, so I'll include it) I ran a Malwarebytes scan yesterday like I do every once in a while to check for spyware/potentially unwanted programs, and a few were detected. I removed them, rebooted, and everything seemed fine.

Later in the evening, when I started up SWBF2, the screen went black and stayed black. The audio worked fine, and I was able to control the game normally (I could hear my mouse hovering over buttons), but there was nothing on the screen.

I tried reinstalling the game as well as updating my graphics drivers, but neither of these fixed the problem. Malwarebytes *may* have detected a file crucial to the game as potential malware, so this could be the cause, but again I'm stumped on this one.

Any help would be great.

Did you try System Restore going back 1 or 2 days prior to running Malwarebytes? Perhaps a DX file was gutted as well, try reinstalling DX again.

Can you expand on you reinstalling your drivers, many a problem arise when donde wrong.

I'll try reinstalling DirectX, then do a System Restore if that doesn't solve it.

I used the Device Manager to update the graphics drivers.
