I got this error on a Dell Inspiron 531. To resolve, I went into the BIOS and disabled the Floopy Drive. Just changed the setting to ‘disabled’ save and exit BIOS. On re-start, the error did not show again. Also found in this article in Dell’s Tech forum.

I found this KB article very useful. I have tried it on many failed laptops and it has worked.

I just found this great article on MaximumPC, my favorite magazine for PC Hardware news. They did a good job compiling these. Props to them.
