Re: Getting black screen while starting STAR WARS: The Old Republic

You should first try to launch the game STAR WARS: The Old Republic as administrator and after that you have to check whether you are facing the same problem or not. To launch the STAR WARS: The Old Republic game as administrator you have to right click on the game launch file and then select run as administrator option and then check whether it makes any difference or not.

Re: Getting black screen while starting STAR WARS: The Old Republic

If after running the STAR WARS: The Old Republic game as administrator also if you are facing the same problem then you should try run the game in the compatibility mode and after that check whether you are still getting the black screen while starting the STAR WARS: The Old Republic game or not.

I think after changing the compatibility of the STAR WARS: The Old Republic game when you try to start the game at that time you will not get any problems. If you need any more information for this then let me know.

I will suggest you to try to solve this problem by changing the resolution from the client_defaults.ini. you have to first open the client_defaults.ini file and after that you have to change the values of the resolution from there and then save that file. After that you have to start the game in your computer and then you have to check whether same problem is occurring or not.

If you donít know from where to find the client_defaults.ini to change the resolution then I will help you with this.

You have to first open the open my computer and then you have to open the open the folder in which game is installed. After that you have to open the game folder. In that folder you have to open the retailclient folder and after that you will find the client_defaults.ini file from there and then you have to open the file and then change the resolution and then you have to check whether you are facing the same problem or not. as far as I know after trying this solution your problem will get solved.

It looks like this problem has occurred because of the graphic drivers in your computer and that is why I would like to tell you that you should uninstall the graphic drivers from your computer and then install the graphic drivers again in your computer and after that you should try to launch the STAR WARS: The Old Republic game in your computer and the your problem will get solved.

I was also facing the same problem in my system while applying games and after that I come to know that Direct X in my computer was out dated and after that I have downloaded the latest Direct X in my computer and after installing the latest Direct X in my computer my problem get solved.

I think you should also check whether Direct X is updated in your computer or not. if it is not updated then you should update the Direct X and after updating the Direct X your problem will get solved.
