Default test drive unlimted

Ok i had a dell 2405 hooked up to my computer game runs, I got a westing 42 inch lcd tv now resolution 1920/1080, all my games except this and battlefield 2142 don't start now won't get in the game. test drive starts then just goes black and flickers a little, battlefield says somthing stopped it from running, it must have something with this lcd tv 16.9 widescreen you think maybe? Native widescreen. they work on the dell 2405, I have it hooked up dvi to hdmi adapter at the end of the dvi cable, what a rip too 32.00 for the little adapter.

That doesn't make sense. Just changing your monitor shouldn't cause a program to crash. Games don't directly interact with monitors. They communicate with the video card. You didn't change the video card did you?

My guess is that it's a memory issue. At 1920x1080 you're using a lot more VRAM. Maybe your system can't handle it.

What are your specs?

Damn!!!

Now that's a powerful system. I can't imagine how a little dvi to hdmi converter would make your game crash.

For Test Drive Unlimited you may want to backup you saved games in the MyDocuments folder, then delete and it will restart at default resolution.

I remember when I switched to widescreen I was locked out of TDU and that's what I did to get back in. Once you're in you can copy your saved games back. You don't want to copy the file that has the configs.

BF2142 may have a similar issue.

Just a stab in the dark.

I'm going to put it on my other computer, it has a core2 duo at 2.7 and two gigs of ram, and a 8800 gtx evga superclock 320 meg, on a dell 2405, I'll run it at 1600/1200, just something screwy with this game and lcd tv monitor could be that hdmi to dvi adapter I don't know. all my other games work halflife 2 ut2004 tombraider, might and magic, shadow run, halo2, Plus a ton more I haven't put on this computer yet Because I've got a pretty recent reinstalled os. Sooo many games to play. At least I have another two computers running win xp, plus another running win xp 64 pro, and this one in my sig with vista 64 ultimate, so I always will get a game to work on one or another.
