Yeah, which drivers are you trying to install? It looks like you're trying to run Windows Update. :laughing:

No, the Windows Update can't block the driver's installation. What do you mean the screen turns black when you click continue?

I remember from every time that I install graphics drivers that the screen flashes dark then light again, maybe your computer is just freezing right after it flashes dark. have you tried downloading more "stable" drivers from nvidia's site yet?
