I had this problem a few times with overclocking and bad motherboards
and stuff. For example, I had a miscellaneous 486 board and tried
to put on an IBM Blue Lightning using the Cyrix 486 settings
but the machine would give the above error when booting.

However I would not expect this behaviour on an out-of-the-box PC.
