If you have a black screen and you can hear the music of the EIDOS logo, than this is definately due to K-LITE
  • So You have to In the START menu then all programs
  • click On "K-LITE" and "configuration" and finally on "ffdshow video decoder"
  • Left clickc on "Direct Show Control", then click on the right display settings. Check "Do not use ffdshow in" then click "edit"
  • then run The executable for Final Fantasy 7 "ff7.exe. Save the settings, and play!

If you have a black screen without sound , the What is the version of your graphics card drivers are they latest found on the website of the manufacturer of laptop? (I do not know if this method is compatible with the black screen) ,but PS1 emulation is better to play Final Fantasy 7 and 8 on the PC since you can apply filters of all kinds to improve the record, which is ultimately better.
