Random Black Screen


Recommended Posts

I keep getting this weird "crash" where my screen goes black. I still hear the music, still have the gw2 cursor that can move around, I think I can still blindly type to say things to people around me although I can't see anything. It has been happening for a couple months and I've even updated my graphics card drivers. Anyone else had this problem?

Having the same issue recently as well. I've done all the trouble shooting steps. Kind of the same thing that was happening several weeks ago.

Ugh, it's really irritating. It's happening everywhere, no rhyme nor reason that I can ascertain. Happens when actively playing in combat, idly waiting for an event, in crowds, all alone, Core maps, newest maps, WvW....just ugh.

Get "Lost connection to the Server" message, then black screen with GW2 cursor, and music. No way to do anything but alt-tab and close GW2 with Windows. Have flushed DNS and restarted router.

Nothing has changed that I am aware of, other than new GW2 builds.

Sorry, I should have made it clear that I responded to the OP. What you are experiencing is "normal". I have that happen, too, when I get a disconnect that is caused by my ISP. :)

  1. I put "normal" in quotations marks, suggesting that it is not perceived as pleasant or normal.
  2. It was referring to GW2's behavior in a case of connection loss on your ISP's end.
  3. No, frequent disconnects or an unstable connection are not normal, so I suggest you call your ISP to sort this out.
