Manor Lords: How to Fix PC Crashing or Black Screen on Launch Issue

1 16

Game crashes and black screens are quite common during the first few days of the launch. Fortunately for you, there are a number of ways to fix these issues.




  • One of the major reasons behind crashes is the lack of admin rights. Right-click on the game icon and choose Run the game as administrator. If that doesn’t work, try using a different account with admin privileges.


  • Sometimes the antivirus or even the Windows Defender might mistake the game’s .exe file as a virus and refuse to run it altogether. In some cases, the app might even quarantine the .exe file. 


  • Disabling the antivirus is never a good idea, so we suggest you add the game (.exe file) to the exception list.  


  • Outdated GPU drivers can also cause the game to crash. Check if there are any updates available and install them right away to resolve the issue.



How do I update my video card drivers?

  • You can manually download the latest update directly from the manufacturer’s website. Here are the links: 


AMD Drivers


Nvidia Drivers


Intel Drivers


  • A better way to update drivers is to simply launch the graphic card’s control center, located on the taskbar.


  • Once the files are up to date, run a file cache integrity check to ensure all of your game files are in order. Here is how you can check the file integrity of your game files:


Launch Steam > Library > Right Click on the game > Properties > Local Files tab > Click on Verify integrity of game cache.


  • The process might take several minutes, during which Steam will check the integrity of your files. The window closes automatically once the procedure is complete.




Fix 1: Restart your game

  • When the black screen persists for a long time, it’s a good idea to check if the game is running in the background.


  • Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to launch the task manager.


  • Check if Manor Lords is running or not responding.


  • If it’s not responding, then restart the game.


  • If it’s running, then wait a few minutes before restarting it.



Fix 2: Switch to the windowed mode, then switch back to the full-screen mode

  • Backscreens can also be caused by a temporary graphic glitch. You can fix the issue by entering and exiting out of the windowed mode.


  • To enter windowed mode, press Alt + Enter while you’re in-game. Press the buttons again to exit out of windowed mode.


Hopefully, at least one of these solutions helped you resolve the black screen issue.
