I get a black screen on my Raspberry Pi. When I right clicked on the mouse, Scratch was opened, and when I closed the program my Raspberry shut down.

Please help me anyone.


Could you give us some more details? What display are you using? - Check the connection

What OS are you running? Try re-installing it.

What type of mouse are you using?

Do you see anything on startup? Try pressing LSHIFT while your Pi is booting.
