Default Error 1324 when launching game


The problem

it seems that I am a bit out of luck when trying to launch the game on my mashine: After launching the game with the PRLauncher the screen goes black. However, the game does not start but exits with the error message 1324 (see screenshot). In fact, I can not even set the display mode (see screenshots).

What I tried so far:

-- run the game with all kinds of compatiblity modes (Win8,WinXP, etc cetera)
-- update my drivers (they are the latest).
-- change the screen resolutions via Windows
-- try to run the game with fullscreen switched off.
-- change the screen resolutions for default and registered profiles in the PR folder. I did this by editing the configuration files manually.
-- reset the profiles.
-- delete the ProjectReality folder with the profiles.

I also tried other resolutions e.g.
Having done all that, I have no idea what I can do next, and would appreciate any help.

Some additional notes:

-- PR version, OS: Windows 10
-- Display and Graphic Adapter are working properly (no errors).
-- With Windows 10, my computer does not accept anything other than 50Hz.
-- The funny thing is that I can run 1400x900/60Hz (not 1440x900!) under Linux. There is no option for these resolutions configurations under Win10.

Not sure where the problem is here. It is either the drivers (thank you, Lenovo, for messing with the graphic drivers to run at 50Hz), or it is the hardware - my old X61 could even run PR, so this would be strange - or (...)?

Many thanks!

The last time I had this problem I unplugged my second monitor then restart PC and after booting up to windows I plugged it in and it fixed my problem.

thanks for jumping in. I thought about doing something with a secondary monitor, but so far I have not had the time to get my hands on one. I definitely need to look into this, as I suspect that my graphic card could run the external screen on 60 Hz.

I had this issue two days ago and managed to fixed it. Not sure if one of these works on their own or requires a combo:

Reset all profiles.
Deleted file DemoBookmarks.con in pathway Users>USERNAME>My Documents>Project Reality>Profiles>PROFILE NUMBER
Restarted PC.
Reconfigured profile settings, and launched into the game with no issues.

Good luck, hope it works out.
