So there I was, working diligently on a class project when my computer suddenly restarted itself only to give me the afore mentioned error. Much to my dismay I was already aware that there was no disk or CD in any drive in computer, and yet I received this error. It specifically states to "Remove disks or other media, Press any key to restart". If I hit any key, it says "BOOT DISK FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER." When I put my system disk in the cd drive it of course gives me the normal options to set up Win XP, repair XP, and quit. Something tells me re-installing isn't going to do anything, since it usually doesn't. Has anyone else ever experienced this message without having an unbootable disk in the drive?
