I generally can figure out any kind of computer issues myself. But I have finally came across one I need some assistance of others with.
I have a Dell XPS M1530 with a NVIDIA GeForce 8400M (laptop). It worked fine with Starcraft II and World of Warcraft and any other full screen games but once I hooked in an HDMI cable and displayed it on my television any full screen games refuse to work. It will start up and instantly crash at the resolution change. I have tried numerous resolutions and tampering with most of the settings such as running as an administrator and compatibility modes. I am stumped and am too the point where I am considering buying a new pc... Any help would save me a lot of time and money let me know if you think you have any idea whats wrong.
I've tried updating the drivers just not removing and re-installing but I don't think that will work.
A 48" Sony Bravia. I am sure I am I am using 1360x768. I have tried a few games that work but apparently Starcraft 2 and World of Warcraft both instantly crash on start. I am going to extreme measures now I have downgraded to different combinations of older drivers of direct x & nvidia drivers. Nothing is working yet. I have also just found out that even without the HDMI being hooked up these games crash. Any clue?
I am currently in the process of taking this error all out. I am uninstalling my video card drivers, games, and deleting un-needed items. I will be performing a chkdsk, defragging and then another chkdsk. After this lengthy process I will reinstall what I need to work and post back here.
