    Black screen on fullscreen mode since nvidia update


    I recently updated my nVidia drivers. Since then, when I start Civ 5 I get the intro movie, but then the screen goes black. It shows up properly when previewing it by scrolling over the bottom bar on the desktop view, but when I switch to it it's only a black screen.

    I managed to get it to be visible either by going into windowed mode, or by choosing a lower screen refresh rate (60Hz, anything above will give a black screen). It was working fine at 144 Hz before. I tried to uninstall and re-install it, but no change. I'd be grateful for any help!

    I might add that since that update I have also had problems with Far Cry 4, which also can't be run in full screen mode.

    Might be something interfering with an integrated GPU.
    Or the installation somehow didn't went 100% ok.

    Reinstalling it, using a clean install might help.
    Otherwise you always have the option to go back a version.
