Hey there @Blindhunter892, sorry to hear that you’re getting black screen issue after installing Bluestacks.


Using software that requires virtualization is not allowed on Shadow. It cannot be enabled and any attempt to do so is against our guidelines. We are unable to activate virtualization or edit your BIOS for Shadow.


For your reference what is not allowed please check out our article:


Installing Virtualization Software


Shadow does not support virtualization software, including emulators, and cannot be modified to do so. Attempting to enable virtualization is considered a modification and is not supported.


You can try to use applications like Docker Desktop, Bluestacks, or Nox, but we are unable to guarantee that it will work since virtualization is disabled on Shadow as those apps are more like Virtual Machines rather than pure emulators.


If you are still experiencing issues, we would love to assist you out properly. Please go ahead and reach out to our wonderful Support Team from your account page ( so that they can help look into this further.
