System Configuration:-
Sony VAIO F15219 + Dual Boot OS (Windows 7 SP1 64-bit+ Linux Mint 15)

1. Although I have all the latest drivers installed in windows 7 alongwith all the required Sony's utility software,I simply cannot hibernate.
I have tried
a)powercfg -h to manually turn on the hibernation which work well as I can see the newly created hibernation file
b)powercfg -devicequery wake_armed to see if any devices are waking up my laptop during hibernation of which there are none.
c)Hybrid sleep is disabled
d)powercfg -energy Report Energy Report
Funny thing is hibernation works perfectly in Linux Mint.
Short of reinstalling windows what can I do?

2. Windows explorer is acting weirdly.Whenever I'm running a bandwidth monitor application or a battery meter which runs in background but visible on the taskbar,they stop responding completely after 2-3 hours.
So I ran sfc /scannow command which says that it has found some errors but unable to fix them.

What should I do?

3.I'm unable to windows 7 boot updater s/w for changing my boot screen.The process appears briefly on task manger and then disappears.
In the past I've succesfully used the s/w on both 32-bit and 64-bit windows 7 with no problems.
So what can be done?

You sometimes need to run SFC 3 or 4 times for it to complete any necessary repairs, how many times have you run SFC and were you at any time asked to insert the Windows 7 DVD.

What type of Windows 7 disk do you have as in a full retail, OEM, downloaded ISO, a burned copy or a back up disk that you have created yourself.

You may be able to use your Windows 7 DVD to do a repair installation if running SFC 3/4 times has/does not resolve the issue/s.
