Mafia 2, Left for Dead 2 BLACK SCREEN PROBLEMS! HELP!
Ok, so I'm running on an hp pavillion vf52 monitor on windows 7 64 bit (Geforce GTS 250), and every time I try to play LFD2 or Mafia 2, the screen goes black and a message pops up:
Out of Range
Set Monitor to:
1024 x 768 @ 60 Hz.

I've tried almost everything and I just can't fix it! Please help ASAP

check you have latest nvidia driver for that card as probably includes fixes for that game

what happens when you do as it says and change monitor settings?

physically change monitor settings first via display properties in control panel then start game

when game starts , dont actually load/play it go to settings for the game , game specs etc and set the range there

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, when I try to change my res from the control panel, it does the same thing...
If I try to change something from the actual monitor, the monitor says "Locked".

I installed the driver for the monitor: still doesn't work.
I can't alter the game in safe mode cuz it doesnt have a safe mode...
In the manual, it still doesn't say anything...
Thanks for the help anyways.
