Upon launching the game, the background image of the title screen will flash, then go all black. I can still move my mouse, but the screen is fully black and unresponsive. I have had this game for many months, and I haven't changed any of the settings prior to when it broke. It has been this way for several months w/out change, and I have uninstalled both the source SDK's and Hidden itself. Help!

Does this (steam://run/215/) work?

It doesn't, no. Is that half life 2?

Close.

It's the Source SDK Base 2006 package, on which Hidden:Source is based. There does not seem to be a reliable fix for this as yet so I'm afraid you're out of luck in the Hidden:Source department.

Though feel free to hammer on Valve's door about the Source SDK Base 2006 not working.
