Black screen of death!

Question

Just reinstalling does not set the viewer back to default (assuming that something got set out-of-whack by your cat.  You need to move your user settings into a temp directory and then reinstall the viewer so that it comes up as though it was being installed for the first time.  You can find your user settings here based on what computer OS you are running: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/User_settings

Seems like you set SL to use fullscreen mode at a not supported resolution. Try to delete the settings file (settings.xml). You should find it here:

  • Windows XP - C:\Documents and  Settings\<username>\Application Data\SecondLife\user_settings
    • Alternatively, use environment variable %APPDATA% to shorten this path to: %APPDATA%/SecondLife/user_settings
  • Windows Vista - C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\SecondLife\user_settings
  • Windows 7 - C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\SecondLife\browser_profile\user_settings
  • Mac - /Users/<username>/Library/Application  Support/SecondLife/user_settings
  • Linux - ~/.secondlife/user_settings
