Yes. I shut down my laptop after I installed. I'm on it now but it has no sound but I heard that was also because of nVidia.
But regarding to getting pass the post boot up screen it actually didn't take very long but maybe can that be I let the laptop sit for six hours-ish before turning back on. I usually have to wait hours though before turning the laptop on. If I consecutively turn it off and on it will never get pass the post boot up screen.
I didn't post this earlier but should I post my specs or do you have enough you needed to know?
Also, I found this program 'Driver
Genius Professional Edition' on my laptop just now and scanned my laptop and it said three drivers
are out of date, but sadly it will not update for me. :P
But I just updated my 'nVidia GeForce 7150 / nForce 630M'
The other two needing to be updated is my wireless card and Bluetooth which I presume has nothing to do with my problem?
