Diablo® III

Screen Turns Black and alt tabs me out.

Same thing with a friend of mine. He went to bed (Europe), so I bump for him.

Same issue here, funny thing is it was reported during the beta, yet Blizzard closed all of those threads and did not even bother to provide a fix. Thank you Blizzard!

Same problem here. Changing framerate or video options didn't help.

ATTENTION:

Try checking the game resolution against the resolutions your monitor supports. I've had this problem show up in several games, only my Del monitor had the courtesy of telling me "Unsupported screen resolution" when it went black.

I never got a bsod, but turning my fps down to 50 has seemed to work for me so far. I don't consider this a permanent fix though.... With my card I should be able to run at over 100 fps with max everything no problem.

Alright so I finally got this to go away for me, I have a GTS 250 and this has been going on all day, but I changed my vid settings to this and it hasn't done it AT ALL for like 2 hours+ now...

Fullscreen
All settings are on High
Foreground FPS is @ 50
Background FPS is @ 1
All boxes in video options are checked
Changed resolution to 1440x900(16:10 Widescreen) This is NOT my native monitor resolution...it's always 1680x1050

For some reason I think the resolution change was the thing that fixed it. I don't know why cause like I said my monitor uses 1680x1050 for everything. It kinda sucks and doesn't look as nice as my default resolution, but at least I can play the game now without it freezing and blacking out every minute.

i don't think this is the problem, the Game heats up the GPU at the point that it shuts off, in my case right when my GPU hits 76c it happens.

I'm sure its a temp issue also, but lowering my resolution must've lowered how much my GPU was working just enough to stop it. My card has ran much hotter in other games...dunno what the deal is.

Tried the Nvidia beta drivers, didn't help. And my resolution was set to exactly what my monitors resolution is, so that wasn't the issue either.
