Unreal editor "crashes" on launch
I finally had time to boot my PC again to start on a project in Unreal, but:
When I started the editor the splash screen showed, but when the load status was at 0% my screen blacked out. Testing with the UT game from launcher: Screen black, intro voice plays.
alt+f4, ctrl+alt+delete, alt+tab,win+d etc: nothing worked. Left computer on, no dice. I had to turn it off using the power button.
Reinstalled PC completely with updated win 10 (home edition, 64 bit), updated drivers etc: Same problem. Moved the engine install: same problem. Launched the editor from project location, with admin rights and still same problem.
Please note that no changes to the engine where made, no files modified in any way by me. I just installed the launcher, added 4.15 engine and tried to launch it from the launcher.
The Unreal crash reporter did not show up.
The one thing that has changed in my setup since this worked is my monitor. I now use a Dell U2711(connected with display port cable).
Other HW: Gforce gtx 670 i7-3770k 16 GB ram Intel SSD
NB: Other games, like Overwatch works as they should.
My gut feeling is that the editor somehow sends a non compatible signal to my monitor, but really I am at a loss on what to do, all tip are welcomed!
Installing Visual Studio resolved the issue for some unknown reason.
