backgammon screen black, game won't play??

Post by ladybug » Mon Sep 15, 2008 10:35 am

i have had no problems until recently. i clicked on icon and it brings up game which is nothing but a black screen. you can hear the music and hear the clicking of things like you were able to see the screen. i uninstalled and reinstalled and right after the reinstall it let me play with no problems. but as soon as i closed it and opened it back up, black screen again. i am playing hw spades online, so i know it is not a firewall problem. i have vista. help? any ideas on how to fix??

Did you try rebooting your computer? Sometimes things can get wonky.

Sometimes with Vista and hw I have sizing issues with both Euchre and Backgammon. Try and make the window a tad smaller by grabbing a corner and shrinking it or there is a square box as a choice in the upper right hand corner, next to the X out box. click it and the screen will become slightly smaller. Suddenly you will see the game. .
