thanks in advance for any help you guys/girls/whatever! can give me. I just bought a great computer that is assuredly decent for gaming, then I bought sid meier's pirates! I hooked it up to my old monitor my parents bought me 3 years ago on sale...it's a "princeton" and as far as I can tell its maximum res is 1024x768. Anyway, the screen goes black when I start pirates!. My brother just bought me GTA San Andreas and I dare not try it until I figure out whether I should just download a driver or buy a better monitor. Like I said, the computer's brand new, and I would assume that all drivers are updated. Help!
P.S. I've also noticed the monitor flickering, though barely perceptibly--it doesn't affect the viewing or anything but it's noticable--does this have something to do with the graphics card, as well? Thank you!
