BLACK screen of death after nvidia/windows updates

I have an older p5nt deluxe mobo with 3 graphics card for my finance computer and i always dread windows updates. Well this one was a good update and for some reason, i clicked on the nvidia updates. Once updated, I rebooted. The black screen with no cursor came up. It does feel like Windows is booting up but it just not finding the monitors... The board doesn't have a video output so how do i go about to uninstalling the updated driver. F8 doesn't work (it probably does but i just can't see it).

Are you seeing the POST screen? Can you get into the BIOS?

I would try F8 again from the beginning (keep tapping it) since the graphics card drivers for POST, BIOS and the F8 function are the basic drivers.
The Nvidia drivers have not loaded yet.

The monitor just keeps saying to check "signal". So f8 doesn't bring anything to the screen. There seems to be a lack of communication between the screen and the computer.
