Launch Fallout 4 from Steam.

Open Options dialogue.

Check your resolution and full screen or windowed.

Close Fallout 4

Launch the way you normally do.

Changing monitors and resolution can indeed keep the game from opening.

Bit of a weird one, never experienced this and I can't find Google or YouTube solutions

 

A few hours ago, I updated my monitor from a 32" UltraGear to the Alienware AW3821DW ultrawide monitor.

 

I changed nothing, and everything runs fine in terms of apps... but when I try to launch Fallout 4 from Vortex, the screen goes black for a millisecond and then nothing happens. 

 

Does changing to a new monitor really cause this, or is there something else happening? I mentioned the monitor type in case that happens to be the culprit, but I'm pretty lost here
