Are you experiencing this behavior with an example project as well?
Tried opening the gui from Vivado Tcl shell. If not here are the steps:
1. Open Vivado Tcl Shell
2. Type the command "start_gui" without quotes

From your last help hints. The command isn't vivado -jvm Xmx4096m.
1) what is the different between the two commands.
2) do you want me to try this command?

Both the commands are differ in the memory allocation.
So please try & let us know your outcome.

I use modelsim as simulator. when the behavior happens, the simulator GUI can open successfully. The path is correct, because for most cases, the whole process is running ok. I haven't try vivado simulator. Do you mean there is something wrong with modelsim software?

I am currently running Vivado 2013.4 on a Dell workstation laptop. I have two screens. One is a 1920x1080. The other 13xx x 720. When working with the simulator, I'm getting about 4 black-screens a day. The only way I have found to get out is to reboot. Windows 7.
I know the PC is still alive, because the internet phone, iTunes, and other things still run. I also have a cursor. But no way to see what's going on.
To date, I've only had problems with Vivado simulation. This could be a Windows thing, I suppose. But I'm not a Windows guru, so...

As a further note. The monitors go to "no input mode" probably indicating the GPU has crashed. I've no clue how to reboot the video system without rebooting the system. Incidently, this indicates it is not the "black screen due to command screen" problem.
