Dont worry.This can be resolved.Goto the BIOS by tapping the F2 key on the restart -Goto the option which says Maintainence>>Event log>>Clear all even logs -Now press F10 to save and exit or press the ESC key just once and Select SAVE and EXIT

What can cause this error?
Well, this is the problem since quite a variety of problems can trigger the error.
1: the bios can be malfunctioning (a bios reset or flash can give a solution)
2: the cpu can be malfunctioning (this requires a new cpu)
3: the cpu socket can be failing (this requires a new mb)
4: the problem can be with bad usb sockets
5: even a bad uplink to a usb hub can cause this error to appear.
Did you change your monitor lately? I would chase down the USB things first...that and the monitor seem to trip the trigger...
Hope this get you started- I think you were right on target with the flash of the BIOS-try it again using the BIOS flash downloaded from the dell site...and to run the chipset again...it just might
Good luck my friend, hope this helps, please leave rating, thank you kindly

I'm not sure right off hand what the WRIT means. But other articles online seem to think that you should hit F2 at boot and check the Boot Order. One guy set it to CD and booted a CD (a bootable one) fine. I would make sure it set to the first Hard Drive. He also said something about: went to the "event log" section and cleared the last event (actually the only one showing). I saved the settings, then booted up again and this time it booted up normally.
* Anyway new hardware external or internal would be 1st suspect in this kind of thing. One person had problems after adding a new printer that had a memory card in it. Apparently the Dell tried to boot from the memory card.
