    You may need to go to Safe mode (repeatively press F8 function key on Windows Startup)
    Log into Administrator account
    Remove all Video drivers (can be two) from Device Manager (and add remove programs)

    Go back to normal mode
    If possible cancel any Video driver install (automatically found by Windows)
    Install the correct driver, supplied in post #2
