    I had the black screen pop up a few times last night.. I think it had something to do with my video card.. because it only seemed to happen when watching movies with WMP or Shows on HULU.com... I haven't really had any problems with it blacking out while not doing so..

    Hi smudge.
    I would suggest you boot up fully into safe mode and let it settle, then try again for the normal boot after a restart..

    Finally after about the 5th attempt to intstall it completed, I think it was an issue with the video driver.
