Sounds like a keyboard problem. Check the connectors to be sure they are fully pluged in, if this isn't the problem try putting a piece of foil over the rt hand keybourd connector contacts that are bussed together (seven I believe) replug the ketboard and test. BE SURE TO BUSS ONLY THE CONNECTORS THAT ARE BUSSED ON THE CONNECTOR!!

Need help

Is error happens mostly when usb devices or diskettes is inserted to the computer.. The computer tries to boot from them but when there isn't any boot data it just keeps making that error..

Just try to remove all extra usb-devices, cd's/dvd's and floppies/diskettes connected to the computer, so it's only monitor, power, mouse, keyboard and internet that is plugged in..

PS: Please rate this solution

Check the ywo keyboard connectors to be sure they are plugged in fully, if they are then press & hold the code key, press & rel the "L" key type 001 then release the code key.
