You get a black screen when updating the GFX driver? Also where did you get the driver? Is the driver compatible with your OS?

Need to update my siggy!

First Uninstall your old display adapter driver.
Make sure u installing a latest compatible driver (qualified for vista 64 bit), from nVidia website.
