What does that mean? My PC has a black screen with a blinking cursor at the top. When I restart, the Dell screen pops up, then this BIOS message appears for a split second, then the blinking cursor.

What's up?

Sounds like either your BIOS got toasted (Did you just update it?) or the AHCI HDD controller fried. Either way I have no advice other than to see if Dell can offer any help. :wavey:

If you give me a model number I could see what I can find.

Is there any activity while the curser blinks? blinking/steady HDD LED, noise from the HDD?

Sharpshooter, please give us some feedback. You posted a problem and then vanished.

That's one of the reasons I hate to help anyone on here..
