blank screen at starup
#1
hey guys. i'm new at using pcsx2 and i'm having problems with making it work. i was able to make it work on my desktop. but when i try on my laptop, i only get a black screen. i can hear the opening music, though. i tried running it with no disc, but i still get a black screen. what am i doing wrong?

pcsx2 version 'n' settings? plugins setting? hardware specs?

best guess: the laptop might lack some features that are required and thus don't really work with the integrated graphics solution. performance of midlevel laptops is another topic.

firstly, get 0.9.8, its newer and better Tongue
secondly, try updating your directx and possibly your intel graphics drivers.
