Why is everything black in render display mode? (total noob here)

Hello guys!

Im starting to learn blender as of today, and while ive been making good progress, since 2-3 hours im stuck on a very simple problem: when i select shading and/or render display mode in the top right corner, all the 3d objects are simply pitch black. ive got a light source in the project (the one thats already there when you make a new one), i didnt alter it at all, everything is correctly positioned (i think).

Here’s 2 screenshots so you get a better idea of my problem:

Please help a noob out :slight_smile:

Have you tried assigning a material to the objects?

Likely a material thing.
See if you are not sending a non existent texture to the diffuse.
