Booting help?

by cottle9 / January 1, 2010 5:32 AM PST

Today i installed some updates from Microsoft and some optional ones for NVIDIA and ACER Display

After doing so My computer Starts up doing the POST and Adapter POST and moves on to starting the OS... which works fine untill it gets to the part where it would normaly say "Aplying updates"... (After the Microsoft Loading Bar and before the login screen) and at that ppoint it goes to a black screen with just the mouse...

I cant Start in safe mode, i dont have anything els pluged in apart from M&K and i dont have a VISTA disk with it so i cant do a Startup Repair...

ACER Build
ACER Monitor
AMD Phenom II Prossecor 2.53GH/z
NVIDIA (8 thousand and somthing)
3GB Memory

Choose "Last known good configuration".

Hopefully we now know not to update drivers that aren't broken.
