It means your Chassis intrusion switch has been tripped. If you do not have one or have no need to recognize that yours exists go to the bios security options and turn it off and it should stop the error. If you do care about the intrusion switch check to make sure the case is closed, make sure the cover is tight, and make sure the switch is in the right place.

In the bios there should be an option to turn off the chassis intrusion error.
