I finished a clean install of Windows 10. Then i reinstalled the game. Was able to get on a map to do all my setting. Then I decided to play a game........

Same problem as yesterday afternoon and early evening before I decided to do a fresh Windows install. Game starts, icon flashes on the bottom of the screen, blue ribbon on the bottom loads into the game and says I am playing. No Screen. I am not the only one.

Will not be playing until this is resolved by either Microsoft or E.A. No way to roll back the update since Microsoft will just give it to me again.

I am bummed out. 

Guess i will reinstall Fallout 4 and play that. It does work. I tested it after initially finding out I had the problem with BF4

Well i fixed it. Got the answer from some guy in Battlefield forums. Apparently the latest update broke boarderless so i had to go into:

Prosave profile in settings in Battlefield 4 in my documents and change these 3 lines;

GstRender.FullscreenEnabled 1 <was 2

GstRender.FullscreenScreen 0 <was 2

GstRender.FullscreenMode 0 < was 2

This is what worked for me. Not exactely what that guys said but it worked.

Shout out to Bizzle for getting me to the Windows 10 download page. Installed off my usb flash drive flawlessly. Did not have to register windows again. Microsoft did it automatically. They also installed a much newer lan driver then what is on the Asrock site. A little bonus. And of course now My machinne has no left over Windows 7 stuff on it.

So again Bizzle SHOUT!

Awesome man, I'm glad you got it working!

I just did that Windows 10 update this morning (I waited to update after hearing about your trouble) and I was able to play right away so it must effect everyone differently. Glad to have you back!

LOL - so let me share my story

I recently build a new pc for my wife. Installed everything brand new, got her a new Pascal gtx 1070 gpu, and proceeded to download win 10 64bit Pro from my msdn account. Next I tried installing the GPU drivers, and I would get an Immediate error - I was like wth this is a brand new card, so I opened the pc up reconnected everything just to make sure I did not mess up anything - tried to download the Nvidia drivers, and Boom same issue - at this point I was like WTF, so I decided that the new card must be bad, since everything worked properly with the integrated graphics. I ran to my local Microcenter exchange the card, and grabbed a new one, and once I tried installing the driver -Boom same issue. This really started to piss me off so I said Fudge Nvidia! - Afterwards with some googling I was able to find that for a Pascal Nvidia card to even show up in windows you need to have ALL the Windows 10 updates Installed - After 6 hours, a trip to microcenter, and two rebuilds, I updated my windows 10 to the Latest version (yes apparently they have a Latest version of windows 10 - it is not just regular update) and behold my drivers started working! - I said YES! hell yeah! - so I decided to load some BF4 to test the build, now a new issue arose - I would get kicked from the game Immediately, with some PB error - so I uninstalled PB and reinstalled it, and joined but got kicked again Immediately, at this point I thought "damn MIG must have caught up with all my Hacking"  but in all seriousness I was really frustrated since I was not having any of these issues on my PC, and I was running gtx 1080 in SLI, so needless to say I was extremely confused, but out of curiosity I decided to check services.msc and found that Both stupid punkbuster services were disabled, so I started them, and behold I was able to enjoy BF4 - but after 10 hours of dealing with random crap I was too burnt out to play. 

so what did I learn?

so i've had issues before where the screen will remain black and seemingly not load. The issue i could never figure out, but the solution was to alt-tab until you could see the BF4 screen as windowed. Then try to get your mouse to hover over settings and change the resolution to borderless.

Yeah after working with windows 10 problems that customer's face, I really vowed to spread the word, that its a crap OS, filled with buggy bloat. If you computer, stick with what you know works.

Windows 8.1 works great, Windows 7 works great.

People just do as they please, then get angry when they have to pay (time/money) to get someone to revert it back or resolve a problem

my experience with windows 10 was this: Installed it for free like it harasses me to, went to play BF4, wouldn't let me play, immediately reverted back to 8.1 with no plans on going back.

I've been on Windows 10 since day 1, and have barely had any issues, especially with games. I built my new computer and installed Windows 10 on that, still no issues. Maybe I'm just a lucky one, but everything runs perfectly fine for me. Guess I'm lucky.

Main reason I upgraded was for testing for work. They told me if something was broken or anything from the OS, they would pay me for the computer. Some, you are right, there is bloatware, but I took probably half an hour to turn all of it off. After that, it works amazingly well.

Yeah there's a program I used to turn off most of their bloatware.
