Do you have any USB devices plugged in? Unplug them if you do. Also, instead of restarting your computer, have you tried shutting it down, then turning it on?

i have unpluged every single device, the only thing that is connected to the computer is the computer charger. When im on the system Recovery options it gives me 2 options below
One of them is Shut down and the other is Restart. i have tried both of them. when i choose restart it restarts and goes to startup Repair.
When i press shut down it just shuts down. and when i turn the computer on, it goes straight to startup Repair again.

It would be best to use another computer to make a System Repair Disc - Create so that repairs run from the built-in System Recovery Options are not dependent upon possibly corrupt System files.

Run Startup Repair repeatedly with reboots, then System Restore progressively back. Next from the options Command line run SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

If this fails use the Win7 Repair CD to copy out your files: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Then run Sony factory Recovery from boot, order your Sony Recovery disks, or find a Win7 installer for your version to clean reinstall Win7 with the Product Key on COA sticker: Reinstalling Windows 7

Remember also that you have a full year's tech support included in the purchase of the Sony, so you can call Sony Tech Support for help as they may have a known fix for Intel Storage software failure. The only storage software component which I allow on a clean reinstall is HD protection which parks the HD during laptop transport. It is more likely the disk monitor which malfunctioned and may be a known issue to Sony tech support. They can also walk you through factory recovery or provide Recovery Disks.
