I have a client's laptop that Win 7 keeps blue screen crashing and restarting.  In safe mode, it seems fine.  This leads me to believe Win 7 has become corrupt.  But before. I go to re-format, can someone check the attached files for clues as to why it is crashing?

Have you tried Last Known Good Configuration option which is available at same screen at Safe Mode ??? Normally this fix issues and brings back to that state where system was working perfectly fine.
Try it and see if it helps you

plse - don't rename the dumps -just attach tehm

it points to ataport.SYS  and   WmiPrvSE.exe (=Windows Management Instrumentation)

the ataport trouble can come from a bad bootsector
Boot up with your Win 7 DVD and get to the command prompt and type
c:
bootsect /fixmbr
bootsect /fixboot

The client does not have their original disk.  My Win 7 disk is not the correct version and will not allow me to run the repair.  How can I still accomplish this?

By the way, Last known config did not work nor did system restore.

normally they should work, according to this article, which presents solutions for making a cd - UNLESS the versions are 32-bit and 64 bit - these are not compatible   :  http://www.winhelp.us/index.php/windows/troubleshooting-windows/repair-your-computer-in-windows-vista-or-7.html

I was running out of time, so I decided to backup and re-format and all is good now.  However, I am awarding the points because some of the information you (nobus) gave me I did not know and is very helpful.  Thanks.
