Unhappy Error booting up :(

Got the error... Reboot or select proper device and start up. No options to go into bios or nothing. Happened after I removed a stick of ram.
What can I do??

You have some RAM in right? And the ram you have in supports whatever motherboard you have.

Does your computer post? As in right when you start it up it tells you lots of info about your computer etc. You might have it set to show a logo instead of posting which my not let you see the key to press to enter bios. If so I would just try hitting lots of buttons common keys for entering bios is delete, and f2 area.

Yeah I have ram in there. No post though. Just get the error right away. I'm gonna check and make sure I didn't unplug anything while I was in there. But that still seems like a critical error message for just something unplugged.
