I would restart the computer and go into safe mode, see if the screen remains the same if it does it maybe a monitor problem.

It would be a really odd theme that has an all-black screen that doesn't use text that is visible. I agree with trying another monitor first.

I've seen this happen to somebody else when patching UXTHEME.DLL to use non-MS themes.

As far as I know they had to reinstall Windows, but there might be another way. You see, there's a reason MS doesn't want people doing this...

Try re-installing your video drivers.

Hey, how it going?
