Dell laptop boot issue

  1. I recently got an older dell laptop, and i have been having a problem during boot. Right before the BIOS finishes loading, i get a white screen that reads- "unknown device in system modular bay." I cant proceed beyond this point, so i just keep rebooting over and over until i get to my desktop. I unplug everything from it, and i still get this problem. any thoughts?

    "sounds" like you have a new hardware device or input device without the drivers installed. Is that possible?

    I dont think so. When i actually get to my desktop, i checked my device manager to see if there was anything that might be giving me problems, and everything checked out.
