Default M1004

I have a Dell Inspiron 2650 that is going to drive me insane. Everytime I start it, it gives me an error -M1004...contact dell. I have upgrade BIOS, found a tool on Bay Wolf.com, the Battery is soldered to the board, the cooling is fine but nothing will work. The business I work for has this error code on several of the dells, something, somewhere, somehow, needs reset. It's like once you get this error, it won't go away......any suggestion......I am going CRAZY with this. You have to press f1 to continue or f2 to enter setup.

I found these on Dell's support site.

This one tells what it is and offers a solution:

This one offers a download to create some floppies to rectify the problem (if the other fixes don't work):

Hope that helps.
