Hey Miho and Wertyu,

In the future please create a new forum post instead of replying to an older one. I did not see any error logs, so will need to do a bit a troubleshooting to find out what is causing these black screens. I do have some steps for you to try that could help.

• Run the StarCraft II repair tool.

• Reset In-Game Options.
    1) Select the game in the Blizzard app and click Options .
    2) Click Game Settings.
    3) Click on Reset In-Game Options.
    4) Click Done and launch the game normally.


• To be on the safe side make sure Windows and the drivers in the computer are up to date.

• Run StarCraft II in windows mode.
    From within the Desktop App, click on StarCraft II and then Options > Game Settings.
    Check the Additional command line arguments box.
    Enter -Displaymode 0 and click done.


• If StarCraft II still black screen, please post a DxDiag and StarCraft II Error Logs. Paste the DXdiag and StarCraft II Error Logs into the post, select and highlight everything you just pasted, and hit the "code" button (</>). That'll make the information much more readable.
