Windows Freeze after driver Updates

Having problems with PC locking up as windows boots up;

Updated drivers for graphics & sound cards.

Now as windows boots up & loads start menu, screen freezes and I have to reboot back to login screen.

I there any way I can get back in to Windows to undo chages I made, as lock up prevents me from doing anything.

I've tried repairing Windows, which was unsuccessful. Short of a complete HD reformat and windows reinstall, I am unsure what to try next.

Any help would be appreciated, cheers.

Safe mode, you could try and rollback drivers, or boot to last known good configuration........

Try booting directly into Safe Mode. You should be able to access Device Manager from there and roll back to your original drivers or do a System Restore to a known good point.
