Computer crashes after NVIDIA driver update

I have a samsung 300V laptop with
Windows 7 home premium 64 bit
Intel core i7
8 gb ram
NVIDIA gt 520MX graphic card
When I tried to update my NVIDIA driver it installs perfectly and it prompts me to restart the laptop. When I restart the windows logo appears and then the startup repair screen appears showing something about hardware changes and I have to restore my computer.
I really want to update my driver to play new games. Please help.

P.S. There is something called NVIDIA Optimus on my PC.

Not sure which update you're talking about but I had issues with the newest one myself. I just rolled back to the old driver and my issue's evaporated. I don't see how Optimus would have anything to do with your problems but its possible I suppose. Your card SHOULD play most if not all the newer games anyway. My Geforce GTX 560M does just fine with most games.

try rolling back the update and then re-installing the driver. That normally works :-)

As Androider86 mentions, roll back your driver. It is actually a known issue for the 5xx cards to crash frequently on the later drivers. The last known good/stable driver for this series of cards is 314.22

And to be honest you really won't see any gain from updated drivers anyway as they are tweaked/updated to support newer hardware.

Also make sure to use a driver cleaner in between uninstalling and reinstalling drivers.
