Ok, every time I log in, about 4 seconds later I get the black screen of death.

I done some research and found out that others had the same problem. I've done full screen and window mode, same thing.

i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07 GHZ
8GB physical memory
Direct X11
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480M
Windows 7 64

I get this from time to time. I usually just restart a few times, or restart my computer. Eventually it lets me in. I've seen a few threads on this, and I don't think anyone came up with a real solution...

Were all the other people who suffered from this laptop users? Nvidia only?

If yes to the second, try different drivers. I don't have the issue, but it's the best place to start.

What kind of PSU do you have powering that thing?

This isn't limited to Nvidia,but affects ATI also.
I get this same black screen once in a great while.

I just use Task Manager to dump to desktop and start xiv again.

When I dump out to desktop a message says something about directx failing.

If by power brick, you mean a 5 pound adapter, then yes.

I'm reinstalling now and see if that works.. I just spent a million dollars for this laptop, I would be upset if it were my laptop not being compatible.
