Black Screen - No graphical output
When I try to boot up an ISO of Gran Turismo 4 (theoretically, this problem is with any game, but GT4 is the only one I've tried so far) I get this:

Sound works fine, and so does the ISO and the controls; I can hear the PS2 boot up, I can hear the game start, and I can hear myself flipping through the menus when I get to the start screen. There is no output for any of it, though.

Here is a dump of the log for my most recent attempt to run the game:

Any ideas on why this would be happening? The error "GIFTAG warning, size exceeded VU memory size 400" seems to be the only error going on... but it is just a warning, so I don't see why it would stop any output...

Gran Turismo 4 is a Dual-Layer game so it seems your ISO is bad, try making a new ISO from the Original Disc with ImgBurn and loading that one.

Oh, geeze, how did I miss that. Thanks!

*Edit* While I'm grateful that we figured that out, it doesn't seem to be the issue... if I attempt to boot with no disc, the screen stays black; I can't see the ps2 startup animation, or the menu that follows.

This will skip the bios part and maybe you will see results

Ah, missed the part where you said it happened with all games...
