You can boot into safe mode.

To boot into safe mode:
  • Turn on the computer.
  • When you hear the beep (or see the BIOS screen) repeatedly Press the F8 key.
  • A list of options should appear. Select Safe mode (not the one with networking).

This should allow you to go in and uninstall the offending driver or roll it back to the previous version. If you need help doing that after you get into safe mode ask here.
