Solved: 3 Years, 8 Months, 1 Week ago Black Screen

I'm having trouble with a problem that I've seen other people post about on different forums, but I haven't found anybody with a fix. When I'm playing, there are no graphics at all. At the start page where it says new game, options, etc... there's no background, only black. When I play, its only a black screen with the little dot in the middle. I moved around and noticed that when I came to what must have been a door the cursor changed accordingly and I could interact with it, but still can't see anything. I have no idea how to fix this.

My graphics card is the Nvidia GeForce GT 540M and is fully updated.

I'll put my hpl thingy here in case it helps.
Spoiler below!

EDIT: I just tried to disable all the fancy graphics things like SSAO, Edge Smoother and World Reflection and after all this technical stuff I went through that seemed to do the trick. Lots of people (including myself) seem to be freaking over a very easily fixed problem.

I have this graphics card and there shouldn't be any problem with Amnesia. I suggest you reinstall your nvidia drivers as they seem to be corrupted.
