Windows 7 goes to black screen before login after installing Intel Graphics Driver

I just got my motherboard back from ASUS (it was RMA'd), and started putting my machine back together. Everything is assembled, Win 7 installed, and that is where the trouble starts.

Once I install the Intel Graphics Accelerator Driver and restart the computer, it just goes to black after the Windows splash screen and before the login screen.

This is on a fresh install of Windows, and I have re-installed several times with the same result.

ASUS P8H61-M motherboard, updated to most current BIOS.

Intel Core i3 2100

8gb RAM (2x4gb PNY)

Crucial 120gb SSD

Basically, everything works fine in VGA, but when I install the drivers for the integrated graphics it goes kaputt.

This all worked fine before the board was sent in.

Reading other things around the web; not sure if this is a problem with the processor igpu or the mobo.

Is there a way to test if the problem is with the cpu or motherboard?
