Black screen when installing 169.01 Driver

  1. I want to play the Crysis Demo and they recommend the Nvidia 169.01 driver. I have an 8800GTS 320mb. I downloaded it and then ran the driver. About half way through it slows down, and then the screen goes black. This isn't to unusual, other driver updates have done this before. However, this continues for hours, and there is an intermittent beep from the mobo. Any ideas?

    Did you uninstall the old driver first?
