Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands PC black screen error?


I am having problem with the Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.
When i am trying to play the game i am experiencing the Black screen problem which i am unable to solve.

Please give me solution. I want to play this game!


Open regedit and search for “AlternateVerticalSyncThreshold”.
If you do not have multiple Ubisoft games installed o n your PC it will show PoP’s registry key.

It should look something like Software->Ubisoft->Prince of Persia – The Forgotten Sands->1.000000000->Engine

Right-click the folder called 1.000000000 and rename it to 1.0.

Solution 2

Go to Start > Run. Type regedit and click ok

# Now in the Registry Editor Windows click on Edit

# Then to Find and type "AlternateVerticalSyncThreshold"

# This will open under Software->Ubisoft->Prince of Persia - The Forgotten Sands->1.000000000->Engine

# Now Right Click on 1.000000000 and click on rename

# Rename it as 1.0

# Click on OK

# Restart computer
