Nvidia driver crashing Windows


I have a HP dv9000 laptop with Nvidia GeForce 8600M Graphics card. After I installed windows 7 on it, I tried to update it with the latest driver from Nvidia website. As soon as the installation is completed, it prompts for a restart and the windows crashes upon restart. I have tried this numerous times and it is consistent every single time. The only option I have is to restore it back and then use the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. Unfortunately, this means that I cannot use it for any games or any of the advanced features. Even at a minimum, I cannot even change the brightness of the screen.

Any help is appreciated, even how to increase the brightness will help. I have already tried Fn+F8 and all other hotkey combinations.
