Black screen? anyone else having this issue.

I’ve been following blender for a bit and just recently installed the latests version. The previous version worked fine, however the new version only shows a black screen. Win2k gf-fx 5200 (i think). I installed the older version and find it does the same, so I’m guessing its a driver setting. I recently installed the new nvidia drivers and they seem to work fine w/ my other apps. Anyone had this happen to them?

anything else to try/check before I rollback the drivers?

you might check your color depth settings. that’s the only thing i can think of.

Check you have camera and lamps.


I changed to 16bbp then ran it, it appeared gray, then sprang to life. I then upped it back to 32bbp and it is working fine now. Strange stuff.
