    I got Discord to work again by making discord.exe run in Windows Xp service pack 3 compatibility mode, and run with administration rights.

     

    I also had that black screen when i started discord this morning, was working fine yesterday and this morning just black screens.

    Uninstalled, deleted everything even registry in regedit, deleted discord folder in roaming folder in appdata etc then fresh installation and still didn't work,  just using pure discord never used any extenstions.

    Thank you Windii! Super easy fix once I knew what to do.

    To clarify, I run Discord on Windows 7 and ran into this problem after the latest update.

    Simply right-click the Discord icon, then click Properties.

    Under the Compatibility tab, checked the first box (Run this program in compatibility mode for:)

    For me Windows XP (Service Pack 3) was already selected, and hit Apply.

    Restarted Discord and its back! (and not in black)

    So yeah..... none of the fixes I have found work for me.  This was my last hope. 


    It doesn't give me the option to change my compatibility....... Any thoughts?

    @Karasu I spent hours googling that when mine didn't have the compatibility tab either.

    Open your windows explorer, click on "Local Disk (C:)" then use the search bar to search for "discord" - wait for all the options to load and in there there'll be a discord.exe file that will have the compatibility tab when right clicked-properties.
    Make sure to select "Use this setting for all users" or next time you open discord it'll be back to the black screens and you have to search for the .exe and manually choose to run in compatibility mode service pac 3 again.

    I've been having the same problem today. Trying to uninstall and reinstall was a nightmare alone. Turns out it's just this simple fix. Glad I finally found this.

    What are your options for compatibility mode? It may work with another version. Have you tried all of them?

    I have that problem, but I can't fix it. I even tried running it with administration rights with no luck! I can still use discord on my phone, but my computer one won't work. It was working earlier today, but then it suddenly stopped working
