See note below.

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kb) in the drop down box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.
Until a .dmp file is generated, the Minidump folder may not exist.

I followed the directions above, still nothing. I don't understand why this is so difficult. It's really starting to get frustrating considering these blue screens are occurring every 90 seconds rather than 4 minutes to several hours now. Obviously I can't get the dump file, what else can I do?

Blue Screen Crash Stop Error: 0x000000c9 on start up. Blue Screens are getting far more frequent.

Something is obviously not right here, you're the first person I've never been able to get a dump file out of.
You can turn off driver verifier easy enough, it will put the crashes back to how they were. Just see the link I gave you above on it.

I'm afraid we just can't give specific help like this, and I understand it's frustrating because it's bugging me and I'm not even the one dealing with the problem machine.

With the error code you've given this is about the best I can do.
Anyhow here is some info on that particular stop code for you.

Blue Screens are so bad now computer has now failed to boot up. On my trusty and reliable MacBook Pro. I have tried system repair using Windows 7 installation disks. Bet you can't guess what happened. A wonderful BSOD.

Yes. I started up trying to repair/restore my computer using the installation disks and the BSOD still occurs. Was trying to repair it and it crashed again just now.

I'm sorry but you are completely outside of my experience now.
I'm going to have to give this up to someone else.
Hopefully dean has some more input.
