So everything was going fine editing. and then I was getting some like scratch drive errors I think. So I switched the scratch to another drive. Im not sure if that messed it up, but then I rendered a clip and boom i tried to watch it and all I got was black with audio. Well the audio works but the timeline isnt playing what its suppose to. I like have everything scaled correctly and I made sure that that everything is view standard. strange Help? :'(

Hey, Ant, there are several possible causes of this but here is where I want you to start. In the Canvas window click on the View pop-up and make sure Image or Image and Wireframe is selected as it appears below. Having Wireframe selected will result in a black window on playback. That may be what you meant by "view standard" but I don't know for sure. The quick key to toggle between Image, Image and Wireframe, and Wireframe is the W key, and it is really easy to hit by accident.

If the solution is not that simple have a look at the How to Trouble Shoot article.
