Can you boot into Safe Mode?
Can you check your Device Manager to see if any devices aren't recognized or enabled?

Try uninstalling the video drivers from Safe Mode. If that works, reboot to see if you can get into normal mode.
If you do, dismiss any Found New Hardware dialog - as that may just take you back to the black screen.

If that works, then you'll have to experiment with video drivers. I'd try the latest WHQL certified release from nVidia for Vista.

I would strongly suggest a bootable hard drive diagnostic to verify that there's not an issue with your hard drive.
After that, you'll have to look at restoring the registry to an earlier date (this is the most successful fix that I've found - but it's not 100%).

I wonder if replacing your motherboard drivers would help? I haven't tried this, but will give it a shot with the next system that's like this at work.
