do you have a floppy drive connected to your computer?

if not, then just login to the BIOS and set HALT ON ERROR = NONE, but keyboard

this will tell the computer to start regardless of the error, except when the keyboard is not detected.

if there is a floppy in it, remove it !
you can also disable the floppy drive in the bios, or change the Boot priority, so it does not have the floppy first

You might also want to change the CMOS battery, as if this goes flat, it may revert back to Factory Default standards, such as presuming you have a floppy drive fitted when you don't.  Other symptoms of this are resets of the system clock and system date.  

What model of PC or motherboard is it?
