Can you use Speccy, or Belarc Advisor to get all your computer's specs and post them here. We just need the graphics, nothing else.
Also check you drivers.

Ok guys my black screen problem has been resolved. Being new to mame and no computer tech genius I finally understood what you guys were saying in changing the settings under Options >default game options > video mode > change to GDI from Auto and now I can see the games. Thanks you had the right solution it just took me forever to figure it out. This will help others I'm sure.
