Windows 7 black screen

When my computer boots up it goes past the Starting Windows part and then goes to a black screen. When i disable/uninstall my nvidia drivers i am able to boot fine but when i reinstall the newest drivers from nvidia and restart it goes back to a black screen. It's not my video card because it worked fine in windows 7 32 bit. Anyone know what i can try?

I'm assuming you upgraded to 64 bit? that means that you need new 64 bit drivers

Was this an upgrade or a "clean" install.

When you say it boots up fine, what';s listed under Display adapters in Device Manager?

And does it have the Nvidia Control Panel as well?

If so, why bother downloading new ones when they're not working and you gave all the functionality of Nvidia's components.
