Windows 7 Black screen of death

Windows 7 Black screen of death

My two week old computer went down early this afternoon. I've been working all day to fix it with no luck, I'd really appreciate any help or advice that you can offer.

"Last night after updating a Intel Driver from Windows Update I had something like this happening. POST would pass but after the little Windows Logo all I would get was a black screen.

All I did was restarted my computer and clicked F8. Selected Repair my computer and did a system restore from 3 days.. The one that it created that day before installing didn’t work and neither the one from the day before.

I have Win7 64Bit.."

I had this issue as well with my laptop when I installed 7. In the end it turned out to be that Win7 had improperly identified my video card and installed incorrect drivers for it. When I manually installed a correct driver, the issue stopped.

I had this problem after my windows 7 did an automated update last night, today I had no luck login in, I then restored the computer to the state before this update and the issue is now resolved, turning off windows auto updater for now untill a proper resolution is found.
