So I see quite a few people are having problems where their game goes to a black screen when it loads. I've had this problem in several games, and it was always the game loading a resolution that my monitor didn't support.

I'm unaware of where the file is to manually fix this at the time. If you're able to access any sort of graphics controls in the game, or via a "game settings" time program (if this game has one, I know NWN did), I suggest checking that to see what it's telling the game the default resolution is.
