I’m not sure but you should know that material and texture viewport shading in the 3D View require lamp sources or they will appear black. Hiding the renderability of a lamp will hide it’s effects at render time and in the 3D View. The effects of the lamps being hidden seems to be the main issue you here. If you open a new file, then make sure the icon we discussed remains on for the lamps, then go to File/ Save Startup File and click “Ok” then these changes should stay the same whenever you open a new file.
