    Hi all,
    Nice to meet you, I'm Paul :) How ya all doing?
    I have a quite significant problem with MP. I did a clean install of Win 7 64bit today, updated everything, latest graphics drivers (NVIDIA Card) and installed MP (the splash screen says its the "anniversary" edition?).
    The install went fine, no problems or error messages. I rebooted and tried to run the software (I had the machine hooked up to the tv via HDMI at this point), but all I got was a black screen. When I moved the cursor I could here things being selected but nothing at all on the screen.
    I rebooted once more, yet still nothing (got to try turning it off and on again eh?).
    I used the client/server setup and used the recommended settings. Does anyone have any pointers as to where I may have gone wrong?
    Many thanks,
