But seeing as you are on this guide, you may have been having blank or black screen issues in MotoGP 22 on your PC or laptop.

So in this guide, we will be taking a look at issues with MotoGP 22 getting stuck or freezing on a black screen when trying to play on a Windows computer. This can happen when launching the game, within a loading screen, or while you are in the middle of a race!

What Causes Black Screen In MotoGP 22?

A blank or black screen when trying to play MotoGP 2022 on your computer can be caused by a few different things, such as your GPU not being capable. We have listed the required PC specs for running the game below.

It could also be your graphics settings being too high, or it could even be something within Windows causing the issue.

Methods Did Not Fix MotoGP Black Screen?

If the methods didn’t help then you could try using a different display if you have one available. It might not be an issue with your system but a problem with the game, so you will need to wait for a new update to be released that might help fix the problem.
