I have Windows XP SP2 and it is suddenly not booting up. I get a message that says Invalid Configuration Information, Please Run Setup Program, Floppy Diskette Seek Failure, Performing IDE Configuration, Strike F1 to continue and F2 to run Setup Utility. I press F1 to continue and then Windows loads and all is fine. I have a Dell computer model E310, which doesn't have a floppy disk drive. The computer is two years old. How can I eliminate this message and get Windows to load normally?

Make sure there isn't a floppy left in the drive.
Change the first device in the boot order to the hard drive in the BIOS
Replace the motherboard battery
