My first install ran fine. Blew up the computer and reinstalled win 7. Put fc 4 back in and black screen started. After searching the net for solution and finding none, I put on my thinking cap to figure out why it worked the first time and whats different after win 7 reinstall. My results was I didn't reinstall my comodo AV which the game ran fine with the 1st time. decide to use malwarebytes this time cause I`m dropping Comcast soon wanted something while using the net for download ect.

So I turned the malwarebytes off and the game was running fine for the short time I played. So try your turning off your av/spyware to see if that causes your black screen
Hope this helps.
