Ugh - u have no replies to this yet.
It just happend to me - i got PK'd, and now I have the "Black Window" mode.
What's wierd, is the cursor shows the "right-click" icon over parts of the screen, and the popup u get on a right-click gives u a visible menu ! But undernieth all you see is BLACK.
Help us !
(tried to power down even)

Same thing happened to me. I played fine yesterday (first day) but today, black screen after log-in. But like Pluvious I can hover over the parts of the screen and get right click menus.
Reboot didn't fix it. Updated to the latest video drivers (Nvidia GEForce2). Didn't help.
Some combination of bringing up the game menu (ESC) and switching between window and full-screen mode actually got me a picture of the spining hanger... with nothing in it! No ship, no overlays. At one point I finally got the map display to come up (F10), which seemed to restore the right side menu overlay, allowing me to lauch to space.
I launched to space and (got a couple strange errors about not being in a station!) then I was in space, and everything was fine.
Great, I thought. Tried redocking. Black screen.
