I was wondering if anybody has figured out why this keeps on happening whether I need a certain patch or it is my computer. What happens is that when I spin around, my arm will turn black and also this happens with the chests. When ever my cursor is over them, they also turn black.
I have Optifine running along with the game and it runs smooth enough.

CPU: Intel Core i3 2.4 GHz

If you can't answer that part, then what version would you recommend that doesn't have very noticeable glitches like the black arm and chests? I haven't played in a while so I lost track about this game.
I think it's just lighting errors for both the chest and the arm.
EDIT: Actually, for the chests, I don't know, sounds like that story about the guy, whatever he touched turn to gold, except in this case everything turns black.
You see, my computer has two chips, one is an Intel Integrated Graphics chip, the other an NVidia chip. When using the Intel chip, when facing certain directions, my arm would turn black. There is no way to fix that (other than to maybe update your drivers,but I don't know about that).
tl;dr- it's your intel chip. As for chests, just break and replace them.
Here, prime example of it existing in the most recent update. I am running 1.2.5 (with optifine 1.2.4 (doesn't matter)) and you can see my hand is dark, the sign is dark, and the chest is dark. I am 100% sure its has to do with the post 1.8.1 lighting, and there will never be a fix unless minecraft gets another new lighting engine. We are SOL. Time to trash my laptop and get a real computer lol

If anyone actually knows of a solution, do tell
- Java updates wont work
- Driver updates wont work
- Minecraft reinstall wont work
- Reinstall of windows wont work
Maybe Ill go try linux and see how my luck is.....
BTW, my parents old computer using a Nvidia GeForce fx5500 (oldschool lol) doesnt get this at all... opengl issues? GRRRR
Probably there was something wrong with the lighting system.
Same problem with me. I encountered it in 1.2.5. Some of the village's doors are black. Placing torches around, it worked fine.
The server is my own, but it doesn't matter. I get the same thing in Singleplayer. After playing Minecraft on a linux partition of the same computer, I didn't have the same problem..... So what does that mean? Linux have been driver support? Better java? better opengl support? IM SO CONFUSED!!!
