Specs: Windows 7, E8200 6gig
I am getting an error from my BIOS or P.O.S.T that just flies by too fast. Is there anyway to slow it down or pause it? I have tried ctrl-break but never can seem to press it exactly in that millisecond the error flashes. I set my BIOS back to defaults, still error message I cannot se because it is too quick.

There should be a PAUSE/BREAK key on your keyboard. Try that.

And are you sure it's an error? Many times, if it is in fact an "error" the message will pause automatically and require you to press a key. If not, it may just be an informational message that doesn't indicate anything is wrong.

I am not sure it is an error. I think it says something about the AHCI option to do with RAID since I have 2 hard drives. I do not want to do raid, so I guess it really doesn't matter. I contacted Dell and they said to install the Intel Storage Matrix driver but it gave me an error "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software. Setup will exit." which is not true, I have windows 7 64bit with 6 gig RAM E8200.

The storage driver may not work with windows 7 or that much ram and is defaulting to that error message.

Also check in cmos/bios setup for a 'stop on' errors option. Setting that to stop on all errors may halt the posting, if it is in fact an error message.
