Many people using ATI radeon cards have reported that the screen turns black during the playback of cut scenes in Resident Evil 5.
This is yet again another screw-up from our beloved AMD (formerly ATI) programming team.
To allow the cut scenes of resident evil 5 to play correctly, you must use the ATI Catalyst control center to disable “CATALYST A.I” and “ADAPTIVE ANTI- Aliasing AAA”.
If you still have a problem some people reported that reducing the frame rate limit from unlocked to 30 solved the problem, others said that upgrading Direct X helped.
If you still have a problem, let me know, we will work something out.
