Thread: No video!

  1. #1

    No video!

    Bought Sid Meier's : Beyond Earth a month ago. I go to start it up and I hear all the sounds perfectly but I get no video. My monitor says "Out of Range". I played with the resolution on my monitor and I got it to work but at a ridiculous low resolution that reminds me of the 1980's. I have a GTX 1060 graphics card. I am not very tech. savvy on tweaking game parameters and stuff like that. Anyone out there please help?

    Easiest way to try first is, is to delete the Beyond Earth folder from My Documents/My Games and then launch the game again.

    What the error means is that somehow Beyond Earth recieves a resolution as best from your computer that does not actually fit on your monitor.

    One other thing that could be happening is that you have a monitor with less 768 in height.

    Well, I have an ASUS monitor model#VN248H. Sometimes it will run the intro. of the game and then when I click it to skip it goes to "Out of range". I don't know...guess I will keep doing "research"....Thank you for your help.

    Make sure you are connecting your monitor to the VIDEO CARD output, and not the one from your computers' motherboard.
