I had the titled laptop mailed to me from Oklahoma. It ran fine, but after a forced boot I've been getting the same message. After some time scouring the web for solutions and similar problems, and found that I can fix it if I make a disk to boot the BIOS update from. Great! One problem. The dvd drive is recognized by the computer, but it doesn't respond.
Any of you hardware junkies got any words of advice or solutions for this novice?
