Was there any hard drive activity when you got the black screen?

I have a couple games that take a while to boot up (mainly because of all the updates) and the screeen stays black for many seconds (30-60 seconds). If I see the hard drive light flashing, then I leave it be and eventually the game starts up.

So as per request of Sony support I reformated my PS3 and still am not able to play Fallout NV because all I get is a black screen.I'm playing Fallout 3,Hunted :the Demon's Forge,and Infamous 2 which play just fine with some lock ups here and there.

I've been having the same issue with a regular copy of NV, but thought the issue was due to scratches. It took two hours for the menu screen to appear after syncing trophies. I just got ultimate edition and it's taken even longer. There are no scratches. I have no idea what would be causing this so I contacted support. Even though this thread is old, I reply with whatever the solution turns out to be so others may know.

Also, I reformatted the hard drive. Didn't change anything at all.
