This is happening on boot up. If I keep hitting the enter key it will eventually boot to windows 7.

hard drives: 1. int13: F0007CE6, int15: F0000F859
get_diskinfo(80), int13/41(80),version=AAZ10005, int13/08(80),version-0, c/(can't read the rest of the line)
s=1024/255/63, int12/02(80),err-0, LBA, C/H/S=1024/255/63, sector count/siz(can't read the rest of this line) 16450560/512
boot drive-80, int13/4b01(80),err=1,drive=80, Not CD
get_cdinfo(7f), int13/4b01(7f),err=1,drive=7f, cdrom_drive ==FFFFFFFF.
Open /default ... failure.

End of Menu init commands. Press any key to enter command-line or run menu..

Any idea what this is?

Are you dual-booting?

System manufacturer and model?

Seems to be boot data related to Ubuntu/Grub, from what I see.

You happen to have a USB drive/stick plugged in?

Next time you login to windows do a virus scan. Something that will check for rootkits would be good just in case. This looks like something is querying the BIOS for INT13 drive settings.

s=1024/255/63, int12/02(80),err-0, LBA, C/H/S=1024/255/63, sector count/size

The above is also hard drive specs I'd expect to see in a BIOS.

Maybe your set to auto detect drive settings on boot and they aren't being saved? Drive is starting to fail? CMOS battery is dead/dying?

Have you gone into the BIOS and had a look?

Dell Inspiron running windows 7. Not dual booting and no USB drive/stick plugged in. She did spill coffee on it but we didn't think any damage was done because we caught it quickly and it continued to work until we turned it off and back on. I've pulled the hard drive and rebooted. I haven't opened it completely up though. I don't believe it's set to auto detect drive settings but I'll look.
