blank screen

Following a Microsoft update last night, my laptop now gets as far as 'starting windows', the screen then goes blank and hard disc activity stops after about a minute.
Windows 7 has tried to repair, on the second attempt gave me the option of restoring to an earlier date, which I opted for, but on the restart, we were back to the blank screen.
Does anyone have an idea of what this might be, and if it is the same problem as last months reported 'black screen of death'?
Many thanks,
