FW Status Recovery Error

I replaced motherboard (part VF3CH) recently on my Inspiron One 2330. Everything works fine with the new motherboard (came with BIOS version A03), system boots up and Windows starts. An error message shortly shows-up during booting: "FW Status Recovery Error" - after a few seconds it disappears and Windows starts. Does anybody know what that means and how to fix it ? Thanks.

Hi Hell Inspiron,

I strongly suspect that updating the BIOS will fix this.

Just updated BIOS to version A14 - still same error message :-(

Just a long shot...

Is the CMOS jumper on the correct pins on motherboard? See page 136 in the 2330 manual for details.

And if it is in correct position now, you might try following the instructions to clear BIOS and then put the jumper back where it belongs.
