How to increase FPS in Call of Duty: Vanguard

Follow the recommendations in order. Install the most recent video driver (Nvidia, AMD, or Intel). Restart your PC. Reduce the resolution and use the reduced effect level in the Call of Duty: Vanguard options. Do not use all kinds of "boosters" and boosters, because they also require your system resources, and at the same time, their real usefulness is generally extremely negligible. However, you can infect your computer with a virus. Reinstall Windows. This option should be used as a last resort if other methods have not worked. The thing is that after several years of operation, the operating system becomes overgrown with unnecessary services and unnecessary processes so much that the work of programs is seriously slowed down.

Call of Duty: Vanguard black screen

A black screen, as well as a white screen, or other colors, can indicate different errors, but most often this refers to a specific problem on the part of the video card, and less often the source of the error can be a RAM module. Also, disable overclocking of PC components if used.

Recommendations when this error occurs

Try running Call of Duty: Vanguard in windowed mode

Windowed mode via .exe

  1. Right click on the shortcut of the game on the desktop, and go to "Properties"
  2. In the line "Object" after the quotes (") add" -windowed "
  3. "C: \ Games \ Call of Duty: Vanguard \ Bin \ Win64 \ Call of Duty: Vanguard.exe" –windowed

Close video recording programs

One of the reasons for the black screen can be video capture programs: Nvidia ShadowPlay, PlayClaw, Dxtory and others

In addition, problems can be caused by programs that are associated with video processing in games. For example: SweetFX, Saturation Toggler and others. All sorts of modifications can also lead to an error. Use a simple rule of thumb: the fewer programs running concurrently with the game, the better. Remove all unnecessary.

RAM testing

In some cases, the reason is the PC's RAM.

  1. Test using a special program to check your RAM.
  2. Try installing DDR modules in different slots.
  3. If your PC has 2 or more planks, then try leaving only one.
  4. For more information on memory diagnostics, see the Internet.

Call of Duty: Vanguard not full screen

Press ALT + ENTER. Check your game settings (windowed mode, resolution, etc.). In some cases, changing the refresh rate (in the Nvidia Control Panel) from 60 Hz to 59 Hz (click "Apply"), and back to 60 Hz helps. Another way: also in the Nvidia control panel go to the section "Adjusting the size and position of the desktop". In the upper right corner, click "Restore".

Call of Duty: Vanguard freezes

Regular lags can indicate problems with the PC. Remove overclocking of PC components provided that it is in use. Test the processor, RAM, video card. There are a lot of special programs on the Internet.
