I often get only a black screen when WinUAE is trying to tell me something, for example "your rtg.library is too old" or "your ROM image cannot be found". I suppose it's related to directx vs. directdraw and related settings but actually I don't care much about this. The pure fact that WinUAE tries to tell me something usually reminds me of what is missing and the requester can simply be confirmed by pressing the return key, then the emulation continues.

In the worst case, when return does not help, I quit WinUAE with the task manager and run it again in windowed mode which usually works without problems and shows me all Windows requesters which might appear.

To cut it short: you probably stumbled across the "the rtg.library you installed is too old, please replace it by the one which comes with WinUAE" message. Just do what the message says and see if the problem disappears.
