  1. so are you starting game in window? and then just switch to full? im bit confused about question
    all games are different many don't like any kind of switching or even minimizing
  2. What you mean by dark is low contrast and brightness? Adjust your brightness. Or black with some kind of message like 'display not supported' the monitor (again some kind of that). If you does happen to have that issue, it means that the resolution of the full screen of the game was too big for your monitor (you can't run 1280x1024 in 1024x768 (XGA) monitor), or not supported refresh rate, make sure you got that all right in the game settings.
  3. yea i start game in window, n it runs normally.. but everytime i switch to full screen.. game screen goes dark n cant see clearly

    i have tried all full screen sizes.. still all i see is dark view.. but works normally in window mode. nothing wrong with game settings just idk why this is happening everytime i switch to full screen
  4. use ATI mobility Radeon HD 5650 and its set as LCD
  5. tried to change 3D settings from ''50% quality 50% performance'' to ''100% quality'' or ''100% performance'' but still the same. everytime i run game in full screen.. the view goes darker (not black) help me please, ty in advance
  6. Try adjusting contrast and brightness. Seems not a big problem?

    Also update to the latest 12.x drivers.
  7. its not brightness problem, game works perfectly in windows mode, only when i switch to full screen the view goes dark like i can't see clearly like walking in street without light lol

    and what r the 12.x drivers?
  8. I think it's the driver then.

    Download this http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/auto_detect.aspx to help you updating the drivers.
  9. ty very much, hope it will solve the problem
  10. ok good luck :).
  11. ok so after installing the auto detect, windows screen changed n became bigger.. icons n things in desktop. tried to go to catalyst (TM) control center and saw alert saying Catalyst control center cannot be started. there r currently no settings that can be configured using catalyst control center. any tips?
  12. Maybe it's buggy. Go here, choose drivers manually and then download and install it.
