Installed Minecraft Forge on Windows XP, black screen
« on: February 14, 2013, 09:18:46 AM »
Hi all, first post  :)

I have come across a very common problem which I could not solve, I followed installation instructions on Windows 7 and it worked, but when I tried it on my old computer which has Windows XP, a black screen occurs. I don't know what's the problem I followed the EXACT instructions.

I'll give you a report on the "ForgeModLoader-client-0"

Update your graphic card drivers. But as you say its an old computer, depending on how old it is it might not be able to run Minecraft even.

I have already updated my drivers, and Minecraft runs smoothly even without Forge. But after I installed Forge it starts to crash  :(

Update LWJGL. There's an article on the Minecraft Wiki on how to do so.
There's an EAQ for a reason. Read it!

Oh, and logs OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!!

Open Display Settings, go to the place where you change resolutions and such.
Click the Advanced button, then the Troubleshoot tab that is in the new window opened.
Adjust the slider back until minecraft works.
(note: may cause other games to crash)
Read the EAQ before posting! OR ELSE!

luacs isn't part of the Forge team, he can do whatever the hell he wants.
