A few days ago my laptop froze and I had to do a power shutdown, remove and refit the battery and reboot.
Since then I have had some problems.
1. I cannot create a restore point. I get a message saying "the writer experienced a non transient error"
2. I cannot repair using a restore point.
3. If I try system reset I get a popup message saying "systemreset.exe-corrupt file" . "The file or directory EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD.LOG is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility"
I have run Chkdsk and sfc /scannow and no faults were found.
Obviously something is wrong with the boot partition but the laptop boots up ok. Any ideas how I can fix this please?

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums! The forums are a great place where you can find solutions for your issues, with help from the community!
I came across your post about System Restore issue, and wanted to help! I understand that you started having trouble after the notebook froze.
First, you can try restoring the BIOS, using the following document:
After that, give the System Restore a try. If you are still having trouble, you may consider performing the Microsoft Push-Button Reset, to reload the Operating System.

Thanks for your help. The issues seem to have fixed themselves. All I did was run some Disk checking utilities including HP system diagnostics from the F2 key. I didn't get any errors found messages but something auto-fixed it.
