The most ridiculous error ever.

One of my computers rebooted recently for some unknown reason, but it has paused waiting for user intervention.
Code:
Keyboard error or no keyboard present.

Press F1 to continue, DEL to enter SETUP.
This is not something new to me and certainly not new to anyone on this forum. I'm just looking at the screen wondering what genius engineer came up with this one.

Some years ago I saw an error box when MS IE crashed. The message was something like this: "The program has encountered an error and must be closed. The error was: Program exited successfully."

Exiting successfully is a SERIOUS error in Msoft land

Re: The most ridiculous error ever.

I've always believed computers should come with face recognition/face gesture recognition software.

For example:

Code:
Keyboard error or no keyboard present.

Move you head to the left and blink to continue, Move your head to the right and open mouth wide  to enter SETUP.
Somewhat like the face gestures of Opera. http://labs.opera.com/news/2009/04/01/
