Black Screen when I start most games

Issue:
Everything used to work but then I had to reinstall windows along with all my drivers today and everything besides Citra is working now. I’m pretty sure I didn’t forget to do anything that would stop it from working so here I am.

I get a black screen when I start up a lot of my games.

  • CPU: Intel Core i7

I found some issues in that log that need resolving:

Considering your games used to work, I do think it’s likely that you used to have the system archives, which you should redump.

I can open bag, i can save the game, the game run, but the first screen blank black.

Disable Hardware Renderer. If that does not help then open a new support thread.
