Default Dawn of War II Retribution Black Screen

For months now whenever I try to play Dawn of War II Retribution the game always crashes after a time. The screen goes black and loses video imput, all the while the soundtrack continues to play but I cannot access the game to fix this issue, nor do I have any idea what is causing this issue.

Has anyone else encountered this? And if so do you know how to fix it?

Might be your computer?

My laptop has occasionally rebooted a few times while playing it. *shrugs*

I dunno. It never happened on my old computer that's true but my new computer is an Alienware Aurora ALX desktop. So I don't see why a superior model can't do what an older model could.

It could be one of four possible things.

1, Your graphics card has gone bad.
2, The game needs an update patch.
3, Your graphics card drivers are out of date.
4, The ingame configuration settings for your graphics card are wrong.

4 is easy to fix, just go into the game and addjust your options if they're not right. 3 is also easy to fix, just download the latest drivers for your graphics card and install them. Same with 2, just download the latest patch for the game.

1 is probably the worst. Try running another game thats as graphically instense, if you get the same issue of your video cutting out, you've got a bad card.

Then theres always the quick check of making sure your cables are connected properly and plugged in tight enough.

Short of all that, I'm clueless beyond the games somehow gotten courrupted and you need to reinstall it.
