When you boot up press <F8> and then load fully step-by-step. Chewck to see what is actually happening when the thing stops and there's your problem. Start again, masking sure NOT to load that particular driver and make sure that all else is working. Then, remove the bad driver and re-install. Hopefully......

And if that does not work, its that horrible f word again
