I've just had the same problem. In my case it was caused by a powered USB hub, removing the hub solved the problem. This error is usually from faulty hardware OR faulty hardware Drivers.

dms thanks. i have nothin connected via usb or any other way and still problem remains sounds like going to be faulty hardware. how do i resolve this?

CAn you get to the F8 tools menu?

If so select command prompt and run chkdsk /f/r

chkdsk /f/r

a received:

the type of file system is NTFS. Cannot lock current drive. Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected.

Try Select "Run" or "Search" depending on your operating system.

At the command prompt.

Type "Lock sys: off" to unlock c: drive .

If you are wanting to lock or unlock another drive then simply replace "sys" with the drive letter (i.e. Lock D: on).
