My old hard drive died and since installing the new one none of my games will work. When I start the game it loads and I get a black screen for a few seconds or a blink and then I am back to my desk top screen. However sometimes the game keeps running in the background. It does not show in task manager when this happens. Other times it just takes me back to the game manager menu that pops up after you ex out of a game when your done playing it. I tried running as game admin per instructions from BF, but no luck. Every game I have has this problem. I am running Window 7 home premium. Have a standard VGA adapter video card, and direct x 11. If anyone can help I would be very thankful. For you Big Fish guys I have filed a request for help and thank you also. ( Would have posted this in " the for technical problems" but it's not up yet.)
