Here are 5 ways can solve the OBS can’t capture CSGO problem. You can try these solutions one by one in order, and check whether they work.

🔥Choose Window Capture

Probably due to the specificity between different games, if you want to record CSGO, you cannot use the Game Capture mode of OBS, where you usually record gameplay. You need to choose to use Windows Capture mode and check if the recording result is still a black screen.

🎯Run OBS as Administrator

When OBS is blocked, a black screen will also appear. So you need to right-click on the OBS icon, choose to run it as administrator, and check whether the fix works.

💡Switch GPU to Fix Capture

If your PC is running on two GPUs, it is also possible that OBS recording will result in a black screen. In this case, you need to adjust the GPU for OBS to the dedicated graphics card.

Navigate to Settings > Display > Advanced Graphics> OBS Studio> Options> High performance, and change it to the dedicated graphics card.

🔎Enable Compatibility Mode

First, you should right-click the OBS icon and head to the Properties option. Pick the Compatibility option, and enable the Run this program in compatibility mode for option. Navigate to the arrow-down option and choose the operating system you need.

Now record CSGO via OBS again, and check whether the black screen problem was solved.
