What are you trying to do ?
a bit more information might be able to help you.
IE: what are you doing when this (pop up) occurs ?
and why are striking the F1 or F2 keys ?

Computer keyboards contain keys that, when pressed on their own or in conjunction with another key, provide shortcuts to performing functions, saving time and keystrokes.
On most keyboards, these are the function, or "F," keys that run along the top of the keyboard. "F1" and "F2" are members of this group.
F1 Function Key

Pressing the "F1" function key while you are in an application will bring up the application's help file.
Pressing it when you are not in Windows Explorer or on the desktop produces the "Windows Help" file.
If you are in an application and press the "F1" button along with the Windows button, you will get the "Windows Help" file.

F1 Function Key Combined With Other Keys
"F1" can be pressed with other keys to gain a variety of results and functions.
Press "F1" and the "Shift" key to start context sensitive help, or help for the application.
Use the "F1" key with "Alt" to go to the next field in an application.
Press "F1," "Shift" and "Alt" at the same time to return to the previous field in an application.
To display the Microsoft system information, press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "F1" at the same time.

F2 Function Key Clicking on an icon on your desktop and pressing the "F2" function key will put the icon into rename mode in the same way as right-clicking on the icon and scrolling to "Rename."
F2 Function Key Combined With Other Keys
"F2" when pressed with other keys combines functions commonly found in the application "File" and "Edit" menus.
To copy selected text, highlight the text and press "Shift" with "F2."
To view a print preview of a document, press "Ctrl" with "F2" when in a document.
To save a document, press "Alt," "Shift" and "F2 together when in the application.
To choose the open file command, press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "F2."

Just bought a new 120G HD for my Dell Latitude D600. The following error message comes up every time I turn it on: MEMORY ADDRESS LINE FAILURE AT 28000000 READ 00000000 EXPECTING FFFFFFFF DECREASING...


While the "memory loss" won't cause a major problem, you will be annoyed by the repeated message. A couple of things may be causing this. One, Windows changed the virtual memory size. This is an area on your hard drive that the computer uses to store stuff when the on board ram isn't large enough to handel it. the other thing that may be happening is you have a memory module going bad. You must remember that the hard drive size has nothing to do with the memory size. That is, your ram memory is what handles most of the processing of information. Your hard drive is just a storage place. Like a file cabinet in your office.

If this information was helpful, please rate it high. Thanks

What has probably happened is, your hard drive is probably dead Basically its saying it doesn't see the drive so it can't boot. It could be either the drive or the motherboard.

Pc won't boot


In your system actually the hard disk is not found because of some loose connection; so you just try to remove your hard disk and then start your pc and shutdown it after 1 minute. and then just attach your hard disk properly.

Check all the cable.
