Windows 7: BSOD trying to start Windows, gets to desktop then BSOD, then reboots

What is the current state of the system? Are you able to run Windows normally but with crashes randomly, or do you have to run in Safe Mode?

I seem to be able to run Windows normally after I do a System Restore, but this only lasts for one session. On the next boot up, I get the BSOD again after getting to the windows desktop. If I run in Safemode I have no crashes, and the only problem I notice is my audio is off and Firefox doesn't work (no FF in normal or safemode).

I would recommend that you Repair Install Windows 7. To get the installation media, use steps 1-3 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and download the Windows 7 Home Premium SP1-U ISO x64 version for your language.

I am having dificulty doing this. I can't seem to run the Windows 7 USB Download installer in Safe Mode, and I can't keep normal mode up long enough to even start running it. I have the ISO you told me to download on the desktop, so now I'm a little stuck.

What about doing the system restore to allow normal mode to run again? Is that method no longer working?

You won't be able to do a repair install in safe mode, so if you cannot get normal mode working, you will have to backup your important data and do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 or backup the important data and use the SONY factory image to restore (press ALT + F10 at startup on the VAIO POST screen).

7ystem restore isn't allowing me to hold up in Normal Mode anymore. I was thinking that I could download the ISO and the windows 7 USB Download Tool on another laptop and then hook it up to mine? Will that work?

If you are able to get the repair install to run on your system, that will work. Given the crashes, I cannot guarantee you will get far in the repair...

At any rate, I would still recommend backing up your important data before doing any steps.

I was able to get the system to hold up, and made the USB ISO... but when I was installing, I was notified that the Service Pack 1 was not installed . So I tried installing it through the automatic updates, but for some reason it doesn't seem to be downloading. Jeeze. Is there a way around this?
