it sounds like a Windows Update broke the manfacturer-supplied driver, if I understand correctly. I'd probably go with my prior suggestion to install the available updates individually (or in small sets) to see which one triggers the failure. Then remove that one and exclude it from future update suggestions.

Time-consuming: yes. :/ But, if you get bored during any upcoming time off for the least you'll have something to do! ;)

When I installed Windows 7 Pro on my Dell Precision M65 laptop, the
Dell-supplied video driver crashed, but I found the correct driver in the
Microsoft Windows 7 driver library and it worked perfectly.

However, I don't believe that Windows Update found and installed it - I had
to manually download it and install it.
