Monitor issue after launching game

I have a monitor issue after starting the game from the launcher.

I get a black screen with an error box saying "Out of Range". I have audio, and can hear the game in the background, but the black screen never disappears. Never had a problem with this during the beta or weekend playtesting.

I have messed around with my refresh rates and resolutions, but can't seem to find a solution. All of my video and DirectX drivers are up to date.

I have the following monitor and video card:

NVIDIA GForce 8600 GT
BenQ G2000W monitor

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Have you tried editing the 'client_defaults.ini' file?

Go to your installation directory ...\swtor\retailclient\ and search and edit for the mentioned file.

Change the FullScreen=true to false and try again.

If you need more help feel free to PM me.
