Resolution issues. Tomb Raider
I ran Tomb Raider on my previous PC fine. I built a new comp and all games boot up and play normally, but now when I boot Tomb Raider it auto changes to a resolution my LCD TV doesn't support. The options that pop up before Tomb Raider starts state the resolution should stay the same as my desktop resolution, but as soon as the game boots it switches and I can no longer see anything and I have to reboot to reset the resolution. Any ideas as to why this might be occurring?

16GB Ram
AMD Sapphire 7950
Intel i5 3570

You using HDMI, DVI... VGA perhaps?

hmmm... good point. I did switch from DVI to HDMI, but yes currently using HDMI. I've tinkered a little with the AMD catalyst settings, but haven't delved too deep.

From my experience the HDMI causes problems in some games, especially when the refresh rate is 25 for them

I don't think is a HDMI issue but a resolution issue, check your TV resolution and set the game resolution accordingly, you can do it from the launcher before starting the game...

...also...check full screen and esclusive full screen as well as frequency and proportions...

Thanks guys. I didn't expect such a simple fix. My TV resolution is 1920 X 1080 and that is what my desktop and all my games are generally set at, but apprently Tomb raider has an issue with that. I lowered the resolution before booting up and it works now. I can't play the game at a higher resoltion, but I will live. Thanks again. If I run into this issue again with other games I may delve further into it, but for now....oh well.

I'm sorry to hear about your issue, but I mirror my desktop to my tv (1080p) through HDMI and I have no issues. I run a VGA cable to my monitor and set CCC to mirror after going through an eyefinity setup and then disabling eyefinity to get my mirror working. Once set it never breaks. Using a 7970 so we're not too far off in camparison.

It happens to me using HDMI, I fixed it simply by using Windowed mode

I was having this exact issue: my monitor (Asus MX279) was giving an "out of range" warning box when launching Tomb Raider 2013 in 1920x1080, and the image was in some other resolution, definitely not 1920x1080.

Solution (for me): changed the refresh rate from 25hz to 60hz. Everything looks perfect again.

Hope this helps, good luck.
