A black screen is usually the result of the graphics card shutting down.  Usually caused by overheating.  But I'm guessing perhaps you might have a couple of problems.  One, the V2 upgrades tend to change your graphics preferences.  You should check those.  In particular, Graphics - Hardware - Enable VBO should be off for most graphics cards.  Second, the last couple versions of V2 are using newer code and if you haven't updated your graphics drivers in awhile, you might try that as well.  Finally, if that fails, perhaps moving to a third party viewer might also be an option for you.
