If you keep pressing this button, you will end up with a blank screen.

What's the difference?
When should I use in or with?

Definitely not "in", in this context. You can't be "in a screen". Well, not unless you're in a science-fiction film. I'd use "with" or maybe "at".

It the proceeds from the auctions are greatly affected upon theintroduction of the Scheme at the end of this year, it may end up in a loss ofrevenue, instead of raising additional revenue.
How about this sentence, can I use "with"?

There's a problem with the parts I have marked in red above. Once you've fixed those, please tell us where you might use "with" in the sentence.
