Restart the game and make sure you are having the latest video drivers installed on your system. Depending on your GPU manufacturer visit the official websites to download the latest graphic drivers. The majority of graphic related issues are sorted out by updating the latest video drivers.

Black Screen also occurs due to interrupted network connection. If you are playing online or in a multiplayer session, then verify your internet is stable. It is best to connect your system directly to the router via a LAN cable. It is the only way to get stable connectivity other than a Wifi connection. If there is no way to connect a LAN cable, then shift your system nearest to the router.
Turn off all unnecessary background apps and tools. For example Google Drive Backup & Sync, Antivirus tools, etc. Disable background apps that will free-up resources and allow Warframe to use more ram and processing power.
