a similar looking error discussed in the Dell Support Forums.

You may not have given the full error message, but if it is the same, then this is the only other case I can see of this error.

It would seem that disabling this entry in MSCONFIG will also prevent this message from appearing.

Find your machine's mainboard's model # and name of the manufacturer of such mainboard and, download + flash the latest in their upgrades of a much newer Bios.

This information is generally situated on one of your machine's side panels of its case.

Enjoy a much bug-free bios upgrade! Wink

Brand of your machine. The model name is, normally, inscribed(lettered/written) onto the case of it. Top or Bottom of it.

Find a long white sticker on the side of the machine that has really big bar codes on it. At the top of the first bar code, you will find the model name and a very long code for it + the Mfg. date at the end of it.

The brand is, normally, the manufacturer of such computer. By using your favorite web browser, type the manufacturer's name + .com then activate the search for it(Enter).

Once found, select the menu Support and, desktop computer. From here, fill in the blanks(requisition type of drop down selective menus).

Happy web search!
