This is a Compaq Armada 1592DT notebook running Windows 95. The other day I installed a new program and then the system didn't shut down properly.  At the time, my friend said don't worry I'll scandisk it later.  However now it won't start up except into safe mode.

I found the cab files in drive C and tried setup. That bombed out - I rebooted from a FDD and tried setup again.  It gets to the point where it is gather info about the devices and then throws back an error and refuses to continue - message is Setup Code SU0507. So what does this error code mean? O what should I do next?

Neither of these answers were particularly helpful, however I've award points in order to close the question. The notebook has been sent back to head office 2000 miles away for them to sort out.

Thanks anyway.
no prob.

In future set System Restore points.  From safe mode, you can restore back to a previous system state.  Easiest way to recover from failed software/drivers
