Black Screen and Cursor after viewing second monitor content

Post#1 » Mon Feb 26, 2024 9:27 pm

If I check forums for information or other things while taking a break from Warhammer I sometimes come back to a black screen that only shows the cursor. I can hear audio, but the video does not load. Have'nt been able to figure any other option other than closing program and logging back in. Anyone else have this issue and know of ways to avoid this, or to fix it when it happens without relogging?

Try running windowed without borders instead of fullscreen
fullscreen off, window frame off

Might be that the GPU is going to sleep when its not on focus and then fails to come back to rendering.

Would this be the case if I can still see the cursor? I would not expect to see the cursor if it was a GPU issue. Either way I will adjust the settings as mentioned and see if that fixes it. Thank You!

Cursor could still work if the 3D rendering somehow stopped or went bust.
