Perhaps you didn't describe your symptoms very well?

It may help to tell us which updates you installed before your "black screen"
symptom started. E.g., did you get a video driver update?
Does your Vista have an alternate boot choice for standard video?
Have you tried booting with Last Known Good?
BTW posting in WU with symptoms like this is similar to running down the
street chasing the truck driver who just delivered a new appliance, trying
to get some support for it... <eg> (Cross-posting for convenience.)
