Black Screen Issue

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Earlier today I purchased Stacking on Steam. I came across the issue where it opens up to a black screen. No cursor, no sound, no nothing. I let it sit for quite awhile to see if it would eventually start it up but it became very clear that it would not. I did everything I could think of (ran the installs of the programs that steam installs manually, made sure it was opening with my Nvida card and not "integrated intel graphics") but am stumped. I'm not super techy so some of the other solutions I have seen were not things I knew how to implement. If anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it. This is the first time with this year old or so computer that I've had an issue with a game. They've all run smooth, which has made me really happy because I almost always had some sort of problem going on with all my games. I posted basically the same post over at the Iron Brigade forums because I am having the same problem with both games.

What OS are you running? What Nvidia card (sounds like an Optimus?)? Do you have recent/up to date video drivers?

Running Windows 8 (unfortunately), the video card is an Nvidia Geforce 635M. I am pretty sure I have up to date video drivers but I will double check right now.

Update: Just went through the long process of updating the video drivers, didn't help.

Got it! Just used the verify Game Cache feature within Steam, apparently some aspects weren't valid (despite deleting and reinstalling it a few times) and now it runs like a charm! Thanks for your help!
