    No offence, but everyone just needs a few more details other than 'black screen'. That's why they are asking you to use the terminal.

    You most likely have a video card related issue if you are going blank for 5 seconds and coming back. However everyone needs to know the output.

    Code:

    Never assume that information you find using a search engine is up-to-date.

    we are trying to best we can to help you but with very limited information from you like, "screen is black" or "it doesn't work" there is NO WAY anyone will be able to inform you why it isn't working.

    If you are so advanced why are you not helping yourself, that guy even posted exactly what you need to do and you still aren't giving us the info we need to help.

    When your car breaks down, do you simply tell the mechanic that your car stopped working and expect him to magic the answer from that small bit of information?

    No, he'd probably ask you what is it doing exactly and then you'd give him more info, like it doesn't start, you can hear the starter turning, but the engine doesn't fire up. Then he'd have you bring it in so he could look at it.

    Us asking you to run those terminal commands is our version of bringing it in so we can have a look.

    Closed.

    Support requests for games in the Steam Beta can go into their own threads.
