Can you play for a while? or does it go black as soon as you start the game?
Have you upgraded your graphics card?
Have you tried running the game in administrator mode?
You can also try running the game in different compatibility.. Simple: Right Click\Properties\Compatibility\The check the box and try different modes.

uninstall any nvidia drivers you have and download them from the nvidia website. if your drivers are messed up you might be trying to launch those games from your built in video card which can't handle it.

have you tried using older drivers? my buddy was having crashing issues with black ops, so i installed an older driver and now it runs without a problem, but he's running ati and catalyst.
