Hello Runner2, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is it just your background that is black, and does everything else work (ex: taskbar & Start Menu)?

Without knowing more, you might check to make sure that the Remove background images (where available) box is unchecked, and that you have activated your Windows 7.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
