I've recently upgraded my graphics card to an AMD radeon HD 7850 and my old screen is no longer compatible, meaning that I’m currently forced to use a TV, until I get an adapter.

I've tried running Arma and Arma 2OA and both have the same issue that when I start up the game, I get a black screen, nothing shows up, it's just completely black. I try to Alt tab out, nothing happens, I press control+alt+delete, nothing happens. It's only when I push the power button that I can see the desktop again.

I have a feeling this has something to do with either the refresh rate, or the change in resolution. as the old monitor worked perfectly.

The old monitor was running at 1280x1024 @60hz
and this new TV is running at 1366x768 @50Hz

it happened on another TV as well on an older video card, that was on a 1920x1080 TV running at 50Hz too

does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this problem so I can get on and play again?
