Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.

I see you have Norton.

Symantec is a frequent cause of BSOD's.
I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

How To Find Drivers:

- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

Good point ! However, would be surprised if it were a driver issue. Sony site is best source for drivers.

What software have you added ?

Personally, I would adamantly try to get a new computer from either the dealer or Sony since it is only <60 days old.

Windows 7 64 bit

My problem also concerns a Sony Vaio. I have followed the instructions the the BSOD above and have uploaded a zip file. Basically I bought it in summer 2011. I had no problem for one year until I uploaded Norton Anti Virus after which the BSOD appeared on numerous occasions with Windows System Repair unsuccessful whenever I restarted the computer in normal mode. It operates on windows 7, service pack 1 and is 64 bit.

After two months I uninstalled Norton and reinstalled it and only got the BSOD twice in 2 months. However last week I activated Skype and got two BSOD's the following day.

I am not that computer savvy and purchased Norton because it was the only anti virus product in the PC World outlet I went to except for McAfee. That guy recently seems to have gone a bit AWOL so I didn't purchase that.

I would appreciate help on this.

Thank you

I got an email notification of a reply from indianacarnie but when I clicked the link to follow it and any other replies no reply has come up. I have copied and pasted the reply below.

o read the original version and respond to this thread please go to the following link:
Here is the message that has just been posted:
Well for a start I would uninstall Norton's first thing. Use this : http:// Uninstalling AntiVirus programs can be tricky so its best to use their own dedicated tools. I recommend Avast (free) but others recommend MSE highly.
Anyway, after you get rid of Norton's, run a sfc /scannow to find and hopefully fix any corrupted system files. Heres a link on how to do that :http:// .

Norton tends to cause BSOD-s. I would recommend uninstalling it with the Norton Removal Tool and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials To Test.
Microsoft Security Essentials.

Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other antiviruses/internet security software. It is free and lightweight:-
warning   Warning
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.
Perform a System File Check:
  1. Click on the start
  2. Type CMD on Search
  3. Left click and Run as Administrator
  4. Type SFC /scannow
Full tutorial here:Disk Check on your hard drive for file system errors and bad sectors on it:Reduce items at start-up. Nothing except anti-virus is required plus improves the time for logging in windows.
