Meaning of 150-SafePost Active msg when booting Compaq Presario and what to do about it?
Posted on 2006-10-30
Whenever I boot up this Compaq Presario 5320 US, I get the following message:
150-SafePost Active - An add-in card in the system appeared to not work correctly on the last boot attempt. SafePost is skipping add-in cards for this boot. If an add-in card needs an unusual amount of time to initialize, SafePost may be disabled in Computer Setup.
I then have to hit F1 to boot to the hard drive. What is the meaning of this? I see where in the BIOS you can disable SafePost. If I did that, what would the implications be?
As far as I know there has been no hardware added to this system.
