If you have Corsair utility engine installed, uninstall it, it should work. Weird i know.

I do not have Corsair Utility Engine, nor have I ever had it, and it still wont launch. All I get is a "Unable to detect any of the entitled languages"

I fixed it by using atl enter to put the game into windowed and then setting it to borderless windowed in the options.

This worked for me too, alt enter and setting to windowed borderless.

 

completely ridiculous that a top level studio has such simple * happening with a launch like this.

 

Learn to QA.

Make sure your laptop is actually using the GTX card and not the integrated graphics.

 

Then again, GTX 950m seems to perform worse on benchmarks than the minimum required GTX 660, so you might not have much hope there.

Ok, having some issue with the black screen issue on my friends PC. I downloaded the copy of it on my PC at home, and it's currently verified and working on her secondary PC, so it's not the game files. Her PC config is 6700K no OC, 980Ti, Windows 10 64, with 32GB of DDR4 RAM @ 2600. The working PC is an i7 4770k, gtx 770, Win10 64, 16 GB DDR3 @ 1600.

 

I have tried turning off antivirus, corsair utility engine (not uninstalling), turned hyper-threading off, set the game to administrator, even tried compatibility with win8, nothing has worked so far to get it past the black screen. Even trying to alt-enter does nothing but make windows angry by making the 'dinging' sound. Oddly enough, it seems to stop loading at 231 MB and then it hangs, and what is worse is it's eating up the free trial time every time it's activated!

 

UPDATE: Tried uninstalling CUE for her and that did the trick... Guess Bioware is going to have to figure that one out.

I managed to get it working by going to the install folder and running the game from MassEffectAndromedaTrial.exe rather than MassEffectAndromeda.exe.

 

Hope this helps other people.
