It is a RAM error, it means that you system has a falsified RAM. To ensure that this is a problem, simply take out your RAM and plug in another one and see if it resolves the issue. Lend a RAM from your friend for sometime before making a new purchase.

On laptops RAM is located on the Back side and has quite easy access to it. You can generally open the RAM cover by simply opening two or four screws.

Also, this has sometimes works out for me, that I plug a RAM out and then start my computer. Obviously you shall hear a beep and nothing shall be shown. After about 10 to 15 Seconds shut off the laptop and again plug the old RAM and see if it works.

SOURCE: No responce from keyboard

The keyboard is not dead. I have contacted HP about this issue (DO NOT CALL THEM AND HAVE THEM FIX IT! THEY GAVE ME AN ESTIMATE OF $300!) they SAY that it is a hardware issue...

However have found more than one website saying that it is most likely the CMOS battery that has gone dead.

SOURCE: i've got a compaq presario 1245 laptop. On booting

hi
you will need to open your computer and look inside. if you are not sure take to a repair centre, the battery is on the motherboard, thats why you need to take really if you are going to be doing it. But i would advised to get a IT guy to do it for you. once its taken out you need to replace it with a new one.

SOURCE: PRESARIO 700 ERROR ON BOOT

If you know how to set up the bios hit f1, if not hit f10, it will boot up and you will need to reset the time and date as they will be wrong. The PCI error refers to a PCI slot, which for some reason isn't functioning properlly. If you run the disk with your motherboard settings that may have come with your motherboard it may just be a driver. If you hit f1 then you will be in the Bios screen. There the keyboard is used to navigate. The mouse won't work, Arrow keys for up down and side to side, and the escape key to get out of a menu or menu item, and enter to select an item. So on the first screen, you will need to adjust the date, time, and year. each time you do this you must hit enter to proceed to the next item. once you get all of the settings right hit f 10, and enter to reboot. So I gave you both ways. If you still have the problem, check the cards that are in your motherboard, there may be a loose one, also try to pop out the battery inside the case, not the laptop battery, if it continues to happen, you may have to pop that little battery that controls the settings for startup, it will reset your saved motherboard startup settings, and once in a while the battery may be bad, which can also cause the kind of problem you describe.

I've got a dc7800 Small Form Factor system. After less than a second, a blue window"smart card authentication" and below that, "smart card reader not present".


"System Options Not Set" normally means that the battery that maintains those options has gone dead. That's usually a 2025 coin cell on the motherboard.
I would replace that first thing, then set the BIOS options. Usually, there's another message that comes up, "Press F1 to continue, F10 for setup". F1 will let you system boot, most likely, but doesn't set the options. F10 (or whatever it says) will get you to where you can set the options.

This comes up mostly when it requires a BIOS save. Try that. If that does not help, sometimes setting the default settings and saving will help.

It's a 'failsafe' - You will need to go back into the BIOS - double check the boot settings - and verify the HDD is set to Auto - make sure the RAM installed is the RAM shown on the boot screen.
Ok, once that is done reboot 2x - hit no keys - if it request F1 to continue, CTRL/ALT/DEL reboot. - go into BIOS, go to boot options find the part that states "stop on error" and disable that... reboot.
If that doesn't help Contact me here. I've other solutions to try as it is a DELL and I've dealt with them for years.

I have a dell inspiron 1564. To use the f1-f12 functions require me to first hit the FN button. How do I reverse this so that i can use f1-f12 by hitting them directly and have the current commands...


You can change it so you don't have to use the FN key by going into the settings while you computer is booting.

Reboot your computer
Keep hitting F2 until a greay and blue settings screen comes up
Choose the Advanced menu
Use your arrow keys to go down and select 'Function Key Behavior'
Hit enter
Select 'Function Key First'
Hit enter
Choose to Save and Exit (usually F10)

Should fix it up.

Blue error message comes when there is any issue with memory.
First Refix your RAM memory.
Then boot your computer with recovery disk.
For that you have to set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom .
