What antivirus are you using? Did you make a full scan recently? and when was the last time you reinstalled the OS on this laptop?

This may not be clear --> I'M USING A DESKTOP THAT IS NOT THE RIG IN MY SYSTEM SPECS. It's running Windows VISTA with no service packs (yes, I know that this is SEVENForums, but still :P) (I seem to have problems installing SP1)
I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials. I haven't done a full scan recently, though. The last time this OS was reinstalled was at least 2 years...

Okay. Thanks, maybe we din't make ourselves clear earlier. We've updated the drivers that were causing the problems. Seeing the Celsius of the computer hardware I think we can say the hardware is okay but 2 years is a long time. I'd suggest you to do a clean install on this computer and let us know if those BSoDs come back.

Good luck

Hm...
I think that I'll stay away from the Clean Install for now, because I have much sensitive data and it would be a hassle to move, especially that my original rig is down.

But I seem to be having trouble installing Service Pack 1. I installed the Update Readiness Tool, because before, it would install until Stage 3 out of 3, and then give me a message that it did not install and was reverting.
But now, the install won't even start. I can press "Install" in Windows Update, and it will complete INSTANTLY. Not even the Service Pack 1 window would show :P

Wait...
Never mind, I just tried again and the Service Pack window popped up...

Well that indicates a problem with the windows installed itself but yes since you're having problems with your original PC, wait till you get that fixed.

If there are other issues, let us know. We'll try to help.

What could be the problem that was causing SP1 to fail?
(And yes, I know that this is SEVENForums, but :P)

I've called a friend for more help. Please wait for a response from him.

Hi Justin,

koolkat has asked me to take a look at this thread for you. Before we continue, I need a little more information so I can see what's going on with your computer Could you zip up the following folder and attach it to your next post please? You might have to copy it to your Desktop first.

C:\Windows\Logs\CBS

It will probably be too big to attach here, if it is, then upload it to SendSpace:

Free large file hosting. Send big files the easy way!

Then send me the link.
