windows 7 reinstall problem with screen after updates installed

just put a brand new hard drive in the laptop, I have no recovery cd or usb
I used a copy of win 7 from digital river and used my code on the back of computer to activate windows no problems yet. Everything looked and felt fine,
I started doing updates for windows, a total of 170 required, downloaded them all.
downloaded the drivers I needed from sony website
half through the updates the screen went funny and never recovered .

attached is a screen shot of how my screen looks any help would be great

This will sound weird but the jpeg looks fine but that's not the way I see my screen, below my task bar is the top of the screen and I cant see anything on the right portion of the screen and my colours are out but on the screen shot they look fine

Have you rebooted in normal mode?
Which Windows 7 did you install?

We can't see what you see. We can only see what you post.
