In Advanced Boot Options then do "repair computer" then "command prompt"
Code:
dir  c:\users
Lists your account name (and some others)?

And listed under C:\USERS in recovery environment.... correct?
If so in windows recovery->command prompt:
Code:
sfc  /scannow  /offbootdir=c:\  /offwindir=c:\windows
Does it complete with: Windows did not find any integrity violations ?

OK. so i ran an sfc scan and i have no idea what has it done but magically system restore started working. so i restored the system to its state before the windows update and now everything seems fine. (according to the wu log there was only one update installed that day, KB915597) after that i got a bsod again but not the same one as before. and then chkdsk ran on c: while booting and now it looks like the problems are fixed. i hope it will stay this way. anyway, i'm marking this thread solved. THANKS A LOT for your help!!

You rolled back the system files by doing a system restore. System is most likely in a wrong state again(?) But it is bootable. Please do in Elevated Command Prompt
Code:
sfc/scannow
And post what happens.

I assume you did install KB915597 afterwards succesfully. Was chkdsk while booting als taking hours to complete? What BSOD did you get? Please do again in Elevated Command Prompt:
Code:
chkdsk/f  c:
It asks you to perform it on boot.... press Y to confirm. No repairs anymore by chkdsk?

I have already done this right after running sfc, no errors apparently. Chkdsk ran normally, both yesterday and today it was completed in 10-15 minutes. I didn't install the update, in fact I want to keep the system from updating for a while. I don't know if that update caused the problem but it sure looks like it. I wanted to run the check ups before installing the updates but it seems like everything is fine. I will wait a couple of days before updating to see if any problem appears. Normally I try not to mess up my Windows so if something has caused a BSOD, it must have happened that day. And there was only one update apparently. I'm not sure what was the error code of the BSOD, I think 0x0000007B. But luckily it only happened once, before chkdsk.

OK. Well clearly there are still some problems. Just a couple of minutes ago I had a BSOD again with some really loud rattling noise.. I'm really afraid this could be because the laptop has fallen and there are some hardware problems..

EDIT: I have opened a new thread in the BSOD section. Getting various BSODs, most recent is 0x000000f4
