Windows 7: Driver Install screwed up OS

Driver Install screwed up OS

I updated my Razer Mamba drivers to the current version for Win 7 64-bit and did a restart. Now the puter boots to a black screen with a mouse cursor. I can move it around and get a little bit of HD activity every now and then. How can I rollback my driver without being able to boot from that install. I am currently on a different install and have been trying to figure out what it installed and just delete it, but I am not getting anywhere. Also, booting in safemode does the same thing.

I contacted "tech support" and they told me to update the firmware... BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE DRIVER INSTALLED TO DO THAT.

Ughhh... Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for reading!

Unplug mouse and see what happens when you turn the computer on.
You might be able to use a USB stick to update the motherboard BIOS.

My motherboard bios is up to date. I did try unpluging it and nothing changed. I just bit the bullet and copied everything over to a different drive.

Doing a fresh install now.

You can try System Recovery. There's a pretty good recovery tutorial here on Seven Forums:
