[Client Bug?] Black Screen in Windows 8.1

Logging into the PBE client and selecting any option (store, profile, viewing a current game, etc) causes the entire screen to go black. The start screen and Alt + Tab windows features still work, and clicking windows where things should be still works (e.g. clicking where a desktop shortcut is will open the program, but the entire screen is still covered by black). This problem persists even after League is closed. When spectating a game, the game loads fine, but upon leaving the spectate feature, the black screen is once again on top and can not be removed without signing out of Windows and signing back in.

Windows 8.1 Pro 64-Bit

UPDATE: Tried several different locations, and apparently only the shop and loading into games causes this. I attached the rd3 log of a coop vs ai game that caused the black screen on completion (likely on load, but the game plays overtop).
