Are you trying to run a recovery CD??

Need more info.
When does this error occur in the bootup process??
Have you added any hardware recently??

I would suggest pulling everything out of it other than memory, cpu, video, floppy and see if you still get that.  I am guessing it is coming from the BIOS.  You will still get it if one of the integrated components is bad.  You will then need to go into the BIOS and disable components one by one until you find the failed piece.

Perhaps this can help ? Seems to solve a similar problem.

http://support.jp.dell.com/docs/systems/dcaydim/syssetup.htm

Overview
Each time you turn on or restart your computer system, the system compares the hardware installed in the system to the hardware listed in the configuration information stored in nonvolatile random-access memory (NVRAM) on the system board. If the system detects a discrepancy between the two, it generates error messages that identify the incorrect configuration settings. The system then prompts you to enter the system setup program to correct the setting.

Cheers,

T.

- This is what I was getting at.

With our(HP) PCs, if you attempt to run a recovery cd on a system which has had hardware added in, it may not work. This can happn because of a hidden partition that contains a cookie with the original hardware configuration of the system contained within. The result is a similar error to the one you may be getting.

You may need to clear the CMOS of this PC. In order to do this, consult the manual for your motherboard.

Is this the same hard drive that you have always been using, or have you swapped hard drives?
