Hey Everybody!

I'm having some major trouble with Minecraft right now.  I bought Minecraft about a week ago.  I was frustrated when I got the black screen glitch.  I didn't have this glitch before because I haven't used Minecraft on this computer yet.  I have also noticed that the 'Login' and 'Options' buttons are invisible except for the border.  Anyways, I log in and it does a quick update, followed by a black screen.  

I AM RUNNING WINDOWS 7, 64-BIT ON AN HP ENVY14.  

Here's what I've tried:
  • Deleting everything except for my saves in the .minecraft folder in AppData
  • Deleting absolutely everythin in the .minecraft folder in App Data
  • Deleting the .minecraft folder in AppData
  • Reinstalling Minecraft (Deleting everything I can find in my computer with the word 'Minecraft' in it and then installing Minecraft again.) (I have done this several times.)
  • Running just 32-bit Java
  • Running both 32- and 64-bit Javas
  • Running just 64-bit Java
  • Reinstalling 'OpenAL'
  • Turning on Force Update before logging in
I'm annoyed that I can't get Minecraft to work on the newest laptop I have access to.  It works on my dad's Windows Vista (HP) and my Windows Vista (Toshiba), but not on my Windows 7 HP Envy14.  

Things I will NOT do:
  • Reinstall Windows 7
  • Buy a new computer
  • Give up
Somebody, PLEASE help me get this working!  I've spent a lot of time on this already, and it means lots to me.

P.S.
If it means anything, MCSkin3D won't work right either.  The panel that usually displays a 3D model of the skin is  all white.  Which means I can't use MCSkin3D either.

In the exact same boat as you. Played it on XP just fine, new windows 7 with java 64 doesn't work. And I tried all of those too. Someone please help? And is there any way to send Mojang a support ticket? I really want to play Minecraft again

My brother is about to get Minecraft, which mens that we can't play together if I can't get my laptop to work, since there's only one computer besides mine.

Only thing I can guess is your laptop can't run 3d programs. Or your graphics card isn't very good at running minecraft.

Also try posting in this forums

Strongbadge, do you have StarDock MyColors installed?  I found out that I had it and I had to change my user back to the Windows 7 Aero Theme from MyColors.  It works now!  

Slynder, thank you for posting.

I never thought this would work but, my old laptop had the same problem. Like you guys I went online to try fix it. I ended up at this website - http://www.extra-ram.com/
I never thought that something can give you ram but, it worked for me.
Please don't reply saying "That's bull!" Because as I've said, it worked for me.
If you think it might have a virus don't download it, but I never got a virus, so.
