I'm having trouble logging into the game, when I hit play, everything goes black and I can't do anything on my computer. I can't alt-f4, ctrl, alt, del. I have to reset my computer completely.

I'm sure there's a thread somewhere about this, but eh.

Thanks appreciated!

Go to the swtor folder and open up client_defaults in: C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\BioWare\Star Wars - The Old Republic\swtor\retailclient

Change: "FullScreen=true" to "FullScreen=false"
Go into the game. From there hit esc > preferences and then to the graphics tab. Change the refresh rate from 100 (or whatever it is here) to the refresh rate of your current monitor settings. so 59 or 60hz

Or you can try hitting alt-enter to switch TOR to windowed mode and vise versa

Save and go back to the client_defaults file and change back to Fullscreen=true
