I have also removed the CMOS Battery waited and put back in and this has not helped.

I have managed to resolve this issue myself.  It seems the problem is related to the Hard Drive.  I replaced the Hard Drive and now the machine works.  I then put the hard drive into another machine and it is coming up with the same error.  Problem resolved.
