TF2 Black Screen but audio works
Seriously, I'm getting really frustrated. How do I solve this? Everytime I launch TF2 I can hear all the stuff going on like de DUNNNN Valve sound, the background song on the menu, but no images at all, just this black screen. I got this VGA:

You need to install binary drivers. Best 313 series but install em packaged not via run installer.
