I have aquired a Compaq Presario 2900D laptop computer. When I turn it on, it goes through the POST and then this error:
162-System Options Not Set--Run Setup

Then it reboots and continues this same process--over and over indefinately. What could the problem be and why can't I get it to boot to a bootdisk or anything. Just this continuous circle? Thanks for any responses.
