  • restart the computer in safe mode using advance startup options(press f8 continously while the pc is booting)

    select safemode, see if the error occurs. while in safemode check eventviewer under control panel and let us know the errors in the system log

  • Please let me know if you get any help with this.  I have the same issue right now, and I can't figure it out.  I got this after I reinstalled the OS after getting a Trojan Virus.

  • Hi

     My wife got a nasty virus, one of the virus protection ones which for so much they will release the hold they have on your comp if your lucky and they just don't pocket the cash and your still *******. So i did a system recovery and got the error SetRes2.4.0.0  cannot create file c:\hp\bin\SetRes.log then all you can do is hit ok or close the window and it then tries to continue and just stalls. I get past recovery complete and go through the beginning of windows setup( set country.time,want to Reg, & check internet Connection). I have redone the recovery alot of times, tried also last known config, safe mode and nothing works. I'm confused though if recovery is complete why would i get a hp fail ? and if so i'm guessing a windows xp disk won't work. Please help.

     Comp : Compaq Presario sr1230nx .

     It seems like this is becoming a common problem as of late. saw posts from march & apri about this happening to others so i'm hoping HP now has a fix for it.

     

     

    Thank you everyone for atleast reading this trying to help me

  • Hi Produs,

     

    I am experiencing exactly the same as you so would be interested to hear if you had any success.

     

    Thanks

  • I have the same problem!  Did restarting in Safe Mode repair?  If not, how did you resolve.

     

    I also have a Compaq Presario  model SR1830NX
