Update for windows 7 (KB980408) Messes up my laptop

Please help me.

   Basically like usual I went in to my update selected all then hit download and install. I continued as usual but then my screen went blank with the little line blinking at the top left hand corner. Then screen went totally blank. After a few minutes I shut of my computer ny holding the button then started it up again. I chose to start it normally thinking that it was just a glitch. Then when the little red,green,yellow,blue windows icon came up it said underneath that it was configuring updates then started to count up to 3000 or so. After it was done I heard the do, ding ding but the screen remained the same after a few minuets I restarted my laptop again with the button chose to start in safe mode then used system restore to fix computer. I need to know how to get this update or if I even need it? I'm running windows 7 home premium on a hp compaq presario laptop And I will provide further info for those who ask. I Will not be updating till I know what to do.


P.S the Update was "Update for windows 7 (KB980408)' Along with-"Intel Corporation - Display - Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family" "Update for Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility View List for Windows 7 (KB980302)" "Update for Windows 7 (KB975496)" "Update for Windows 7 (KB975422)" and "Definition Update for Microsoft Security Essentials - KB972696 (Definition 1.81.746.0)" I don't know if any of these had to do with the problem.

Thanks. I have fixxed the problem and I was able to boot from my 7 disk. I have done a sistem restore and I have blocked the update so that I will never do it again. Thank you for the help guys.
