Zune Software: Black Screen of Death


Protect your eyes !

On my new laptop (ASUS Zenbook UX305) with an Intel HD 5300, I get this message when I start Zune Software:


Solutions found Online:

Zune Software needs to be started in the basic display mode (GDI Mode)
Find the Zune Software icon on your desktop > Right click > Properties. In the “Target” field, after the path ends (after last parenthesis) add a space and then enter -gdi.

The target field should then look something like this: "C:\Program Files\Zune\Zune.exe" -gdi

PS: This did not work for me. If you know of a solution, please do leave a comment below.
