Hi guys, I read somewhere that changing some of the Visual Effects under performance options made the black screens disappear. I've not scientifically determined if this is the case (N=1, being me ;-), so help me / us by understanding this is making a difference. Please adjust the settings to what I have and see if it helps. Let us know your findings.|
Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Advanced -> Performance -> Visual Effects -> Custom
Then deselect everything but leave "Smooth edges of screen fonts" and "Use drop shadows for icon labels" ticked. So everything else OFF (=not ticked = blank just to be sure that I explained myself properly ;-)
Cross fingers ... I've had no issues since I did this. May be a coincidence, help me to find out!
