Hi, whenever I try to load FM17 I got this white screen (screen shot attached) and can't do anything with it. I can only close the program by using the task manager.

I have had no issues before with FM17 and I have been using it since the beta.

I have tried the following

1. Verifying game files

2. updating graphic drivers

3. reinstalling FM

4. reinstalling FM into a different drive

5. reinstalling steam.

I'm not very good with computers so I am completely stuck on what else I can do?

Hi @Sputnik5,

Could you please try the following and let us know if this works:

- Open Steam and access your Games Library
- Right-click on Football Manager 2017 -> Properties -> General -> Set Launch Options
- Type this in the box: --no_exclusive_fullscreen
- Click on OK, close the window and launch FM17 through Steam

This will enable the game to launch in maximum borderless windowed mode

Sputnik5 is so bad you like me when trying to download FM17. The screen itself is white too.

Where are you trying to download the game from?

Ok, could you please follow the three steps linked below. 

Delete Cache
Delete Preference 
Reverify Cache 

I followed those steps and the game works again, however It will only work in full screen mode as when i switch it back to windowed the same problem occurs. Guess I'll just have to use full screen in till FM18. Thank you for your help :)

Thanks for letting us know.

The white screen issue you have encountered is something we are aware of and are trying to reproduce internally.

Unfortunately, playing in full screen looks to be the best option for you as have yourself discovered.

If you do have the time, it would be a great help if you could send us your DxDiag. All the information we can gather on this situation, the better. The link below provides all the information you need on how to send us your DxDiag.

Apologies for the inconvenience,
