1) Why did you reinstall? What problems were you having?
2) So just to be sure, I've understood, you get the login window and you enter your name & password and then it goes to the black screen?
Try logging in as a different user to see if that makes a difference.
3) Try booting in "safe mode" by holding down Shift after you hear the chime.
4) See if anything in this Apple doc on startup problems helps:
5) Otherwise, try the standard troubleshooting suggestions:
