Customer Service Representative
Thank you for your quick reply. I was taking a loko at your system specifications and I see that you are running on a MacBook Pro. I know that my MacBook Pro that I run at home gets very hot when I run Diablo III. Previously it took about 20 minutes for my sister to do exactly what you're describing.

I'd like to have you take a look at a Support Artical which discusses preventing overheating at

If the black screens continue to occur, try checking yoru temperatures as the updated game will use more of your graphics card then it has before. This in turn can cause some machines to overheat and experience the symptoms that you are having. Please run a temperature monitoring program like iStat Pro available from

You'll need to check your system documentation for the specific temperature ranges that your system should be running in.
