I think a lot of people have been having similar issues to this (all slightly different, but basically the same). I thought it was my computer, but after reading these forums I'm going to wait before buying new parts....
Right now this is my issue: After 5-10 mins of gameplay (usually after I restart my computer), i will get either a BSOD, black screen, frozen game with a sound loop, or just a plain automatic restart. Sometimes it will even mess up mid-restart after this happens and need to be force-shut down.
It's not even always mid-gameplay; it will do it sometimes if i'm just browsing the AH (but still 5-10 mins after I start the game)
I've read quite a few threads on black screens and FPS issues and so far numerous people have said they have powerful systems and still have these problems. I wouldn't buy new hardware and expect this to go away. Save your money, its a Bliz problem.
Same thing here. Been playing since release without issues.. Since last night now i am unable to stay signed in for more then 3-4 mins before i get the BSOD.. and i strongly advise people not to keep trying repeatedly! For some strange reason it started making my pc have trouble rebooting after the like 15th time i tried(im stubborn lol). Hopefully blizz gets off their **ses and fixes this.. cus im able ready to give up on this game after all the crap i've already had to put up with... :(
i got this problems after update
Be4 this happened i used to play full screen, not any problems happened, but after update, i got this issue happened on me several times today already, i m getting tired of it...
have tried to use window mode, failed
and i believe it is not my pc issue
Just bought and installed the game, right after hitting the play button in the launcher, it plays a 30 sec audio clip which i guess is the intro music, all with black screen, then black screen and nothing else.
Please address this matter Blizzard...
even until today there is no solution yet from blizz or Nvidia or ATI.
I believe it is not overheating issue since my GPU temp stable at 47 C at all time, with fans at max 5,900rpm.
Currently i can't stays more than half an hour for 1st time then 5-10 min next second-third.
Before patch 1.03 i played 8-10 hours a day without problem with full screen and fps 150
Same problem for me, black screen randomly after a while of playing, forced reboot. Then black screen sooner next time. Would be nice if they'd at least acknowledge the problem :(
Edit: Got this from another thread, the 2nd problem seems to be the one affecting most :)
FIX for Diablo 3 keeps shutting down my computer. (See Below)
Thanks to BoxMan#1357 for the info.

I have the same problem as the author of the thread. But before searching the forums, I made a ticket to battle.net support. And three days later received this:
Thank you for contacting Blizzard Support. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. At the moment we are very busy with Diablo and other promotions.
The first thing we would suggest to you, is to check and maybe change the cable thats connected to your monitor to rule out whether this might be causing the issue. Also the next step is to downgrade your drivers to this
285.62 to see if the issue will resolve for you. At the moment it is a known issue with Nvidia drivers.
Please remove any lint , dust that may cause the card or fans to overheat.
If there is anything else i can help you with , please feel free to contact us by replying to this ticket.
Have a great day and thank you
Now for me, rolling my drivers back, did not work. Also cleaning all dust from inside my pc and checking the cables did not fix it either. But it may work for anyone else.
Also it's been suggested to Set "Max Foreground FPS" to 60 FPS from 150 FPS, which I've tried, but has not fixed my problem.
The only thing I have not tried which has been suggested is changing my video card fan control off auto and running it at 80 to 90%, does anyone know how to do this with Windows 7 64-bit. My video card is nvidia GeForce GTS 240 also.
Nice to blueposts also; but i'm sure Blizzard are working on this.

OK so after many trials and tribulations I can confirm that it is a heat issue on my card. I am running NVIDIA 304.79 (BETA) on a GTX 570M in an MSI laptop with Win7 64 bit. It turns out on the MSI laptop there is a 'turbo' fan button on the soft touch buttons that I never saw (I run dual monitors and use my laptop as a desktop). Anyway, hitting that turbo fan button runs the fans non stop at max rpm (sounds like a blow dryer). As soon as I do that, I played for 8 hours multiplayer and no issue. The GPU did max temperature according to CPUID HW monitor at 63C. I have blown out the machine so there should be no dust or debris. I don't believe it is CPU related as I ran Prime95 8 threads on max for 8 hours w/o issue.
