Problem #1 Metro 2033 black screen on start up / launch :
Solution #1:(By TehWhale 4A games tech support)
Browse to your this folder in your Steam path: \Steam\userdata\(user id)\43110\remote
With your own user id.
In that folder you should find the Metro user.cfg file that the steam cloud saves locally. Open it and change the fullscreen value to off, then save the file.
Completely quit and restart Steam.exe so it grabs the updates from the user.cfg, and launch Metro.
It should launch in windowed mode. Go to the options menu, and change the Direct X value to 10, accept and quit.
Open the user.cfg file again, and change the fullscreen value back to on. Completely restart Steam again and launch the game.
Solution #2:(By Riutse from the Steam forums)

I got a black screen upon re-entering the game from an alt-tab but found that alt-tabbing again and then re-entering the game for a second time fixed the issue.
Possible Solution #3: (By DualBootGamer from the Steam forums)

For those of you who have Alt+Tab blackout here is the fix
*Manually set the nvidia driver override
*Use 8xQ as AA - CSAA Modes give problems (8x 16x 16xQ)
*What works for no blackout (2x 4x 8xQ)
Now you will get past the black screen…
This is what I did to fix it… (see images I uploaded)
Personally I turn v-sync off, but I turn on triple buffering.

Problem #6: Metro encounters crashes during start up or launch or while running:
