Black Screen Issues on Windows – Fix

See a black screen when playing Valorant? Although this is an annoying issue, you’re definitely not the only person to experience it. And more importantly, this is fixable.

 

 

Fix 1: Switch out of your game, then switch back in

This is the first thing you should try when you have a black screen issue on Valorant. To do this:

 

  • When your game is running, press the Altย andย Tabย keys on your keyboard at the same time to switch out of the game.

 

  • Press the Altย andย Tabย keys on your keyboard at the same time to switch back into your game.

 

If this works for you, you won’t see the black screen. But if the issue persists, don’t worry. There are still other fixes for you to try.

 

 

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

Some temporary graphics settings issue usually causes a black screen. And this can usually be fixed by switching between the windowed and full-screen mode. To do so:

 

  • When your game is running, press the Altย andย Enterย keys on your keyboard at the same time to go to the windowed mode.

 

  • Press the Altย andย Enter keys on your keyboard at the same time to switch back to the full-screen view.

 

This should fix your black screen issue. But if not, then you should try the next fix below.

 

 

Fix 3: Update Video Card Drivers

  • Press Windows + R.

 

  • Type “DxDiag” and click OK.

 

  • After the DirectX Diagnostic Tool loads, select the Displayย tab.

 

  • The video card’s name and manufacturer are listed in the Device section. The current driver version is listed in the Driver section.

 

  • Visit the driver manufacturer’s website to obtain the most up-to-date driver. Contact the driver manufacturer for assistance with updating the driver. If the computer is under warranty, contact the computer manufacturer.

Intel Drivers

 

 

Fix 4:ย Reinstall your game

If the fixes above don’t work for you, you should try reinstalling Valorant. To do so:

 

  • On your keyboard, press the Windows logo keyย andย Rย on your keyboard at the same time to invoke the Run box.

 

  • Type appwiz.cpl, then pressย Enterย on your keyboard.
