Blank MCE screen



I am running se7en on a low spec test setup and everything is OK, or seems to be, until I try and run MCE which gives a black screen. If I hit the windows button I can see it normally, lurking on the desktop but when it takes focus, back to black ???!!

Any ideas more than welcom

I am assuming that by low spec you mean *not* the machine in your system specs?

Yep John - my second HTPC, a shuttle sporting P4 2.4GHz, 40GB HDD, 512 RAM, and HIS Radeon 9250 128MB. It's a beast!

I might also throw in to the mix that it is dual booted running XP MCE and MCE runs fine in the XP environment.

Hope this helps.
