When I load minecraft from the downloaded version I log in then get a black screen.


When I load up on the browser I get a white screen.

I have vista and use firefox.  It was working a little earlier today but with no sound now nothing at all

Its gray. Just press control alt delete, and then end the task and then download the newest version of minecraft.

I have this exact same issue. However, I've tested the Linux and Mac clients. They both work for me. During the free play weekend I downloaded and played Minecraft. I bought it today. When I try to login now, it doesn't work, but this only happens on the machine I played the free-play on.

I'm having the exact same problem, White/Black screens, but also only on the computer I played the free weekend on.
Would love if someone could figure out whats going on.

Try a system restore to whenever it was working.

Dont system restore that wont do anything :S

Loads of people are having this problem since the update including myself , system restore will do nothing for you.

As for the people having issues with the free to play version they tried before buying it. I was having the same problems with that, it seemed to conflict with the files created by the free version, I could barely even get on before it would crash. I ended up just wiping all minecraft data off my pc and reinstalling the version i purchased. It reduced the amount of crashes but didnt stop them happening

Hello. I'm new. My friend convinced me to give this game a try. I love it, but I too am experiencing the black/white screen in windows seven. worked fine for several days, now it doesn't. Nothing seems to have updated, and I've tried everything in the "read before posting" sticky, but still no luck.

I don't mind the down time too much, since this is still a beta, but is there any help anyone can offer? Is there any guess as to how long this issue will persist before a fix is published (or updated out of existence)? I just set up my first server today, and now I have my friends playing on it and I can't. It's quite disappointing.

Finally found a fix that worked for me. (not thanks to getting any help) I'm linking to the thread where I found help, and bumping that thread. Because it ought to be stickied.

That link isn't in reference to the same problem as this one. Still having the same fing problem. bought it yesterday played it all night no problems at all. Then my laptop has a bit of a crash (asks for a system restore) so i system restore and now Black/White. Please only post if you know the problem or at least recognise the symptoms. If one more person posts 'have you tried reinstalling java, drivers etc?' Yes we have just because we are having tech issues doesn't mean someone who has no experience of the issue can walk in and help the noobs by saying 'did you try double clicking'. Sorry to rant but its so unhelpful and patronising. It would be ok if it was once per thread even. Mah.

I seem to be having the same problem as you. In my case, after I log in to minecraft (the downloaded version), I get the Mojang logo. After that, I get the background of the options menu, but not the title or options or anything. That lasts for some ten seconds, and after that the Minecraft screen goes black. The rest of my pc keeps functioning like normal though. Is that similar to what's happening on your computer?

Btw, I hoped it would be resolved with the 1.7.2 version, but while it did download and update, it the results are still the same...
