Windows 7: updating Graphics card driver results in black screen after start up

updating Graphics card driver results in black screen after start up

I recently had an issue, whereby my computer would no longer startup for unknown reasons. In order to fix this, i found a windows 7 cd (previously windows 8) and installed it. It was all going well until i attempted to update my graphics card driver. Each time i do so, i get as far as the windows logo on startup, the computer somewhat reboots, and it goes straight to a black screen with only my mouse visible. Every time, i have to go into safe mode, uninstall the driver, and carry on without. My graphics card doesn't appear in the 'windows experience index' under either 'graphics' or 'gaming graphics'. Any help would make me a very happy boy, thanks!

Have you tried waiting for at least 5 minutes before everything gets back up running? It also happens to me everytime I update something and restarts and everything gets ready up on a minute.
