      Blue Stacks Black screen after a minute or two? (loading clash of clans for example)
      This worked for me.

      1. Install a settings app in blue stacks and turn off sleep timer.
      2. I set mine to never sleep and it works fine.

      When installing, if screen goes black, wait for install to finish before restarting. Black screen is sleep mode and the install is still working. I got a notification on my windows 8.1 machine when the install was finished. Restart blue stacks open the settings app, find sleep timer and set to never. Works fine now.

        How can i put that APK on my Bluestacks? And i have another problem. About the “Black Buildings and Black units” How can i fix it?

        • http://www.infocurse.com Ayan

          You do not need to put apk on Bluestacks. Just download the apk in your pc and click on it, the Bluestacks APK Handler would automatically install it. For Black buildings, follow the methods mentioned in this article.

        I have the same problem. I can see the green turf but the buildings are black. I have Intel core 2 duo, 2 gb ram and (sadly) Intel q965/63 express chip set family (as it says in the device manager). Any suggestions?

        • http://www.infocurse.com Ayan

          Have you tried above methods. There is no other fix for it, till now.

  • Brandyn

    Update to my problem at this point. I have officially tried your troubleshooting techniques listed here including downloading your version of bluestacks. Now I have a new issueBefore all buildings were black along with the little villiage people. Now with this other version of bluestacks, all of the buildings are invisible. if i click on the grass you see town hall 1 pop up but the buiding is not there. this includes bushes and such also. Any help appreciated

    • http://www.infocurse.com Ayan

      Sorry, there is no other fixes other than it. It worked for many people. I am surprised by your situation. Try running Bluestacks and no other software at once. If you are using laptop, then plugin your charger and play. As mentioned by Bluestacks official team, live source power helps proper functioning of Bluestacks.

      No, you would be lucky to play COC in this config. I would suggest you to increase RAM and graphics card for the same.

      Sorry, it won’t run in Pentium 4, you need a more strong processor and graphics card to play COC in your PC.
