I've had no errors whatsoever.. Now I'm back in Vista and the computer's running like a charm.. hopefully it's not a hardware issue.. any other tests I can do from the Vista end?

1) Make sure the motherboard is on the latest BIOS.

2) Check that nothing is over-clocked. Ensure adequate cooling.

3) Reinstall Win7 from scratch. Do not apply any updates. Do not connect it to the network. Do not install any apps, games, or utilities. Keep it physically disconnected from all networks.

4) Test what happens when you "use" the machine that way for a few hours. Play some Solitaire, author some documents in Notepad.exe... if there's a crash, your hardware is defective almost beyond any doubt.

5) If you don't experience any crashes at all for several days, start very carefully and slowly applying updates and installing your apps/games. If the crashing resumes at a certain point, at least you'll know the likely trigger - it's the thing you installed last.

I'm 100% nothing's overclocked. I thought there was a BIOS update but I had the most recent version.. My computer seemed the most stable when I didn't have automatic updates and did nothing, basically. I'll give it a shot this weekend. Thanks!

Yes, potentially. Given your symptoms, it is very important that a BIOS update be attempted. That's what they'd do if you paid a shop to "fix it".

As long as you follow the instructions carefully, the update will go smoothly.

Also, since I got my ISO from MSDNAA, could it be that there was a missing component in the ISO file and it didn't do a perfect installation, causing the problems?

and yeah, I edited that post :P
bad habit..

Highly unlikely. The incidence of "bad ISO" problems is vastly overstated. In truth, the error checking mechanisms would catch/repair/report minor problems during the download, and anything bigger would likely truncate the download anyway.

No harm in trying another download though. If you still get these wininit and winlogon crashes on a completely "vanilla" install, with an updated BIOS too.... hardware.

There isn't a BIOS update for my motherboard yet, but I think it's a problem with Toshiba.. Apparently lots of people with Toshiba's laptops are having this exact problem. I have a support case open with them though, so hopefully they'll figure something out soon.

Good luck with it. I hope the BIOS update does the trick - as far as "hardware" fixes go, that's the cheapest option
