Updated Drivers & PC Freezes

Hi,
I have updated my Nvidia chipset & system drivers for my motherboard & rebooted. However, upon rebooting, if I move my mouse, it will work for 2 seconds and then everything completely freezes. I am not able to press the start key, click on any icons, or get task manager working. As its completely stuck, I have to reboot.
If I reboot in safe mode, everything works OK, but in safe mode I can't access system restore to roll back the drivers.
Can anyone provide any advice on either how to access system restore in safe mode, or how to identify any recently installed drivers (whilst in safe mode) and roll these back???
Thanks for your help !
Steve

If you can get to safe mode is it possible to right click your computer select properties/Hardware/Device Manager, select display adaptors expand it right click your Nvidia display card and select properties again, then roll back your driver then reboot normal.

Click Start>right click My Computer>Properties>Hardware tab>Device Manager>double click the driver you want>Driver tab>Roll Back Driver

Hi, thanks for both of your quick responses !

I updated the chipset & system drivers from Foxconnchannel for my Winfast motherboard from here :-

I think one of the files was a PCI SM Bus driver & there were about 4 others drivers. Would these all be display drivers or some other type of driver ???
Sorry if this is a stoopid question, never done this before !

In safe mode you should be able to get to Sytsem restore if you can get the RUN command and then type in rstrui.exe
