SOURCE: Plug & Play Configuration Error

this may not be your ethernet card that is causing the fault, it is probably a flat cmos battery (CR2032) disc shaped battery normally close to the memory slots. This will need to be replaced, it's a simple job, just remove side panel of tower and flip the battery out and replace, probably cost $3.00. You will then be prompted on the next boot up to press f2 to set the date and time and then save and exit again for a reboot

Got to BIOS by pressing F2,check or any floppy setting and disable it even in boot order setup.This will solve your problem otherwise replace the lithium CMOS battery.

As you have reset the BIOS setting to it's default setting.Floppy drive is enable by default whether your system have a physical floppy drive or not.

SOURCE: At start up i get Alert! previous Fan Failure

One of the cooling fans inside the case of the computer (where you put cd's in, and plug all your cords in. There will be at least 2 fans in your unit, but probably 3. The fans keep the computer running cool, preventing damage to the sensitve chips and electronics inside your computer. There is a big fan near the top of the case, this is for the power supply. This is probably NOT the culprit. You can remove one side of the case by removing two of three screws. (dont be nervous, you wont wreck anything.) With the case off, turn the computer on and look for the fan that is not spinning. Turn the computer off. Check the wires running from the fan to the computer (should be three) two are for power, the third sends the signal to the comp telling it its speed and whether it is working or not. If everything checks out, then you just need a new fan. There are only two sizes, but you should be able to remove the fan by disconnecting the wires (mark where they went!!) and removing the phillips (star) screws that mount it to your case. Take the old fan to radio shack or a comp. suppy store and match it up. All computer fans are 12v with 3 connectors. You should be able to manage this repair yourself. You will not break anything, just be sure the power is off when you are removing the fan and take care not to slip and damage something when you are removing and installikng the fan.
Cheers

If you have another keyboard try swapping it out and see if it reads the new one. Also a stuck key could possibly cause this error. System battery message probably means you need a new battery for the motherboard. If you replace the battery get the new one before removing the old one. If you leave it out too long you can clear the CMOS

Certain models talk to a chip in the adapter, sounds like this one has gone bad. At this point you can live with, buy a new one or pick up a used. This is a fairly popular model and you should be able to locate one from a dead laptop.

Won't turn on


No bootable device usually means that your hard drive has failed. It is either not connected properly to the computer or the drive needs to be replaced.
