Why am I seeing a ‘bank interleave requested’ message when I start my computer and how do I stop it?

When I turn on the computer, the temps and other readouts come up and at the bottom is where I get the statement,

BANK INTERLEAVE REQUESTED BUT NOT ENABLED.

    Not the original asker here, but someone else who must admit I got a little nervous reading this one. I thought it was something like Microsoft embedding a rootkit in a pirated OS (like the Sony one in DVDs) that displays a message saying someone didn't pay Dolla-Dolla Bill Gates for their copy of Windows and now he's going to take YOU to the bank. ^_^

    Your BIOS requested that your RAM provide a bank (segment) of memory, but it couldn't because it's bank interleaving is not enabled. You must enable interleave mode in your BIOS.

      Sorry, but I looked and there is no place in my bios to do anything with bank interleave.
