    Stupidly installed this: http://www.mediafire.com/?3d2hbizmbzt
    wanting better performance from my Nvidia 8600M GT 512Mb.

    Was asked to restart after install & wouldn't boot (only getting the grey then blue screen in 10.6.2)
    Am now unable to boot up in anything other than Safemode.
    While installing update is gives the option to revert, tried this in safe mode
    but it ends in a fail.

    If it can revert then somewhere is a backup of the original driver yeah?
    Where is it & can restore it manually/rename it as the original?

    Please help as am panicing.
    Tried to use TimeMachine but won't boot for me in Safemode!?

    Because you can boot safe mode there is nothing wrong with your computer.

    You need to delete the new driver for your card. But the easiest way is to reinstall OS X over your existing installation to write over the systemfiles. Your personal files and folders stays unchanged, but a backup doesn't hurt.
