that means that you should upgrade your BIOS with a newer version.  First check what BIOS you are using then go to there web site and download the  newest one.  That should fix your problem

have you recently installed win98 or anything new like that?  Try looking around for bios upgrades.  Check out http://www.unicore.com  There are many places around the web in which will give you the explanation you are looking for in which you are not thoroughly explaining here.  If you can give us an explanation of anything new you have added to your computer that would help. I know when we moved up to Win98 we had to upgrade our bios.

some motherboards feture a jumper that can be set so that when teh system boots up, it reads in a BIOS flash from a: automatically.  Check and make sure that youe havn't accidentally knocked the jumper loose.  (Or that is't come loose on it's own)

Your Motherboard manual will tell you if you have such a jumper.

Also check and make sure there is not a key stuck down on keyboard... some system can be made to bios flash by pushing a certian key combo at boot.

The above comment assumes the "ready for BIOS update" is before the system starts loading off the harddive... do you get th message if you use a boot disk?  If not it's a software problem...

Is it a T1900 laptop or similar, if so we just did a Bios update and I think you have to hold a key down when you boot with the disk containing the update in order to get it into the mode where it will then load the bois, so could be a sticking key, (but this may give a different error!)  can find the exact answer Monday if you still need an answer, (and please confirm model!)
