Try to change the game's config manually.
Right-click on the game in your Steam library and select properties, then in local files tab click on browse local files (names might be different because my Steam is not in english).
Once there open the file config.lua with notepad/wordpad and edit the number in ScreenResolution = line.
Try using a lower number, save and try to run the game. If you get a black screen try again with a smaller number until it works.

I had the black screen with cursor and music, too. Opened Steam-->SteamApps-->common-->Spellforce Platinum Edition and found the Spellforce.exe file, right-clicked to open the Properties. Under the compatibility tab, choose to run in compatibility mode for XP (SP 2). You may also want to tick "Disable visual themes" and "Disable desktop composition". Save and it should now let you actually play the game.
