I have searched for a cause for this....and am clueless.
Thank YOu so Much.
system specifications??? not sure what you mean...Windows xp pro.
This error occurred after I went through f11 and went back to original factory settings.
It does come up on it's own.
I did replicate the error after a hard reboot and going through f11 and following the prompts.
The media is original and no CD was needed.
The machine gets stuck there.
Thank you for your reply.
