    Just trying to play black and white on my new PB12.. and when it starts it just fades to black, plays all the music etc... and thats it! It won't display anything at all on the screen, and it won't force quit so I have to force restart. Does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be?

    Thanks

    well my friend at works old imac does this when he tries to play Starcraft or diablo..... I havent had the time to go to his house and look at it since he lives on the oposite side of town then me. I think it might be a bad vid card though.

    Well I tried reinstalling it, but it didnt change much at all :(. And I don't think its my graphics card... it seems to run ut2003 etc fine. Strange.

    The only time I've ever seen anything like that is trying (and failing) to play 4X4 in Classic on 10.2.X. Starts up, fades to black, off the HD.

    hah.. actually ended up fixing it simply by installing the update for it. I feel a bit foolish now :D
