Hi, I keep getting a black screen on my Toshiba Satelite laptop.  It is an issue involving the display drivers.  Microsoft put an update for my video driver in Windows update and I must have accidently installed it. Now my computer boots to a black screen.  When I reboot into Windows Safe Mode, a pair of identical drivers are listed under display adapters.

If I disable them both, I can boot to Windows 7 normally.  If I uninstall them and boot, Windows Update appears in my system tray and puts the pair back into display adapters and I get the black screen again. I am in an endless loop.  I keep disabling and Windows Update keeps reinstalling. In the past I could disable, uninstall and reinstall the Windows 7 drivers from Toshiba (from 2009). Now its like Microsoft has determined I will use their updated drivers no matter what. Does anyone have any idea?  Iliterally spent ALL day yesterday working on this and woke to a black screen this morning. I have tried the Toshiba drivers, the Intel update tool drivers and Microsoft update drivers, each reboot, I end up with the identical pair that gives me the black screen. I'm exhausted and out of ideas.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
