There is a connection problem at your battery or in the cables. This usually happens at the battery post, whether a top or side post model. The cable is getting enough of a connection to run the lights and such, which is relatively low load. As soon as you touch the starter, which is a high load, you lose the connection and everything goes black. Please remove both sides of the battery connection, clean the posts really well, then re-tighten everything up, ensuring you have a good connection.
