Keyboard problem

HP Recommended
slimline p260

At boot, bios displays a screen for about 3 or 4 seconds at the bottom of which is says "keyboard error".  Then it says press esc to enter setup below that.  But in that 3 or 4 seconds of display I do nothing and it continues to boot properly and everything works fine.  How can I eliminate this error.  I see many posts in this community and on the internet but they all address people who get the keyboard error screen and then nothing happens.  But mine , as I say, just continues on without a problem..  But each bootup displays keyboard error.
