HELP!!! I am getting a Nonvolitile Memory Invalid Error!!!

Hi,
I previously had a config error on startup. I fixed that problem by resetting the clear config memory switch. Now when I reboot I get a POST ERROR Code: 43h 172-EISA Configuration Nonvolatile Memory Invalid error...
How do I fix this???
Thanks
Stan..

I did some surfing and downloaded the Config System disks which has solved the problem..

The System Config Utility Disks are downloadable from the hp site. You create them, reboot and configure your system. With the Nonvolatile Memory error, SmartStart will not load as the system will not recognise the onboard memory..
(that's the message you get when running SmartStart with this error message).
The config disks do the same job as the utility on SmartStart does..
