First, are you sure Sony sent you the correct recovery CD set? It sounds like you may have a driver conflict problem. Another possibility is a memory error. If you can get the laptop to boot into safe mode you can turn off the option for the system to restart after an error. Then you could post the error information from the blue screen which may help narrow down the cause of the problem. To turn off the restart option boot into Safe mode by pressing F8 after POST completes and then after the Windows desktop appears, go to Control Panel >> SYSTEM >> Advanced tab >> Start up and Recovery button >> and uncheck the box next to "Automatically Restart"
