Solved: 4 Years ago black screens

i know this is a rather common issue with amnesia but iv been looking on the forums for over an hour and haven't found a solution. i only get the black screen when im in game i can bring up options and other menus, i can walk around hear sounds, but i can see anything. is this a driver issue,something with my settings, or are important files missing.

Update your drivers. Also, post your HPL.log at

Nope, that isn't the issue. To check what drivers you have, click the Start orb, type in on the Search button "dxdiag" and click on what the search results are. Click on Display.
