[Solved, NVidia Optimus strikes again] Windows 8.1: Black Screen when opening PPSSPP
Hi I'm new here.

My first version of PPSSPP was 0.9.5 and I noticed that it started up in a black screen. My friend's always had a nice blue screen with an intro of sorts. I ALT+ Entered and it corrected this glitch and allowed me to play normally. A single crash in almost a month of play. I recently updated to windows 8.1 from normal 8 (I guess) and now it won't change this black screen regardless if I'm full screen or not. I can't hear sound and even if I load from the menu on top, I still can't get it to load anything.

I thought it might be my drivers so I updated them, which was needed, and still no change. I went and downloaded the newest version of PPSSPP 0.9.6, no change. Tried in x64 mode: No change. There is no lag, and it's responsive with all the menu options (I can select and deselect anything in the menu) but the emulator won't let me past the screen. I'm at my wit's end. Been at this for hours.

ACER Nplify 802.11a/g/n +BT 4.0
Intel Core i5-3230M 2.6GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M with 2GB Dedicated VRAM
8 GB DDR3 Memory

If you guys need anymore information, I'll respond as swiftly as I'm able. I'm good at a lot of things on a computer troubleshooting is not my strong suit. Thanks for your time. Smile

Edit: Sound is working. Just no video. Going to explore divx and opengl options for further results.
Edit 2: Drivers fully updated, opengl updated, directx updated; Still no fix. I had my suspicions, but whatever Windows did in the update must have messed this up. I've seen a lot of people having issues with games in general with this update but the only problem I've come across so far is with ppsspp. If anyone has any ideas in what direction I should take to fix this, I'll work with it and see if I can make some progress.
