    Video capture has a black screen and working audio

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    For better clarity, please let us know:



    • Which application are you using to record the screen?
    • Are you aware of any changes made to the computer recently?
    • Which build version of Windows 10 are you using currently? To check type:
      winver in the search bar on the Taskbar and hit
      Enter.


    If you are using Game Bar to record the screen, I suggest you to refer the steps mentioned below:



    Change Game Bar settings:



    I would suggest you to change the capture settings for Game Bar and see if that helps. Refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows Logo key + I, to open
      Settings.
    2. Click on Gaming.
    3. Click on Captures on the left pane.
    4. Under Recorded video, change the
      Video frame rate
      to 60 fps.
    5. Now, set the Video quality to
      high
      from the drop down.


    Change the game video settings:



    You may also want to change the video settings for the game to full screen windowed mode.



    Check Xbox Game Monitoring service:



    1. Press Windows Logo key + R, to open
      Run dialog box.
    2. Type services.msc and click on
      OK
      .
    3. Scroll down and look for Xbox Game Monitoring, and see if the service is running.
    4. If the service is not running, right click on the service and select
      Start.


    For additional information, see
    Troubleshoot Xbox Game Bar on Windows 10
    .



    Let us know the results.



    Regards,
