Acer 5100 not booting up after I downloaded a software patch

After my laptop popped up telling me that it is recommended to download a new software patch, I downloaded it. Now my laptop does not boot up and after running its self diagnosis, I am told to contact the manufacturer for help since the laptop could not restore its bootup to before downloading the patch. What are my options and how can I get my laptop back to work?

Check the driver status of the USB. You can do this by accessing the Device Manager. For users using Windows XP, just click the Start icon. On the Run box, type devmgmt.msc. You can also do the same with Vista.

Next thing, check for devices with an (!) sign with a yellow background. These devices needs driver update or correct driver should be installed.

For a start, you can do a Windows Update. Click Start, All Programs, and then Windows Update. This will download patches for your system.

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
