Meaning of 150-SafePost Active msg when booting Compaq Presario and what to do about it?

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.

Thank you.

This refers to an add in card.

If the system is getting old, it may have mistaken a change in hardware.

If it functions OK, I would disable it.

ALso you might want to reseat any add in cards.

I hope this helps !

I tried reseating the cards but kept getting the message.  I then disabled SafePost and no longer receive the message.  Thank you.
