Graphics Driver Update and black screen

Last response: in Graphics & Displays

So I built my new pc and had no problems with anything until I installed the graphics driver update for my processor from Intel. I rebooted as instructed and found that I could not get past the initial windows logo. I hear the sound of the welcome screen but the screen itself is black.

Has anyone else had this experience?.. and how should I go about solving this problem?

When you boot up, after post and just before it shows you the first Windows screen, rapidly hit F8. This will bring up Safe mode. From here you need to uninstall the drivers for the video card. When you reboot, you might want to find older drivers to use in their place.

I did try that, however, the old driver doesn't work either... any other thoughts? :(
