BIOS problems!

It's interesting when you notice obvious computer errors on public informational computer displays. One bank in Brisbane I sometimes walk past has a computer display which mostly displays information about the banks services, but sometimes just displays a blue screen of death.

Well, the one for you here today is from a hospital lift. I won't bother saying which one. Normally, it displays information along the lines of what is on each floor. Last week, it was just letting people know that there was a problem with its floppy disk drive. The lift worked as normal, though...

Lift computer error message

Note: this image has been rotated 90degrees so that the computer text is the right way round. In real life the display is mounted sideways and the text saying 'Lift No. 3' is in fact normally orientated, not sideways.
