How to Fix NBA 2K22 Black Screen

First, ensure that your PC supports the minimum requirements to play NBA 2K22. The system requirements are:

If your system can run this game, move to the second potential fix for this problem.
Lower your Graphics Settings
See if lowering your graphics will allow the game to run smoothly without any black screen coming up midway.
Try Windowed Mode and Change to Fullscreen
Doing this works out well sometimes so try it and see if it resolves the issue. What you need to do is press Alt + Enter on your keyboard to make the game go to windowed mode and then press the same keys to go to fullscreen mode. If the graphics have glitched, this should ideally solve it.
Alt + Tab
Press the Alt + Tab keys on your keyboard when the game is running and then tab out of the game. Next, tab back in using the same keys and check if the black screen goes away.
Update your Graphics Card Drivers
Ensure that your graphics cards are updated to the latest version. Head to the manufacturer’s official website to get the newest version so that you don’t get any black screen or crashing issues.
