HDTV TV Going black when starting PC game.

Hey there. I've been searching Google quite often about an issue I've been having while trying to play PC games with my new HDTV monitor. A few months ago I picked up a Mitsubishi LT-52244, and have been using a HDMI cable converter to connect to my monitor. I've setup my own resolution that fits perfectly, which is 1804 x 1026. There are a lot of games that work without any difficulty on my monitor, but with a few, the screen will bug out for a second, then go to no signal. I'll have to Control+Alt+Delete out to see my computer's display again, thus ending the program with Task Manager. I've looked up so much about the issue, it's been giving me a headache. I figured this is the last place I'd turn to before I throw this monitor on Craigslist.

  1. Bump + Edit: I've found out the resolution is changing when starting a game, causing the HDTV to go to a unsupported resolution. How do I keep the resolution at my main display resolution?
  2. Bump....
  3. Run in windowed mode until you can get to the options screen and select the proper resolution?
