This black screen in 8 is somewhat common, reported with Nvidia drivers, Intel drivers, using custom themes, poking DWM with a feather. I've had to reinstall several times already because of it. Though I'm not able to get back to the logon screen as you are.

I am going to try to roll back drivers then... this is frustrating.
