Level 2 cache failure
Explanation: Some BIOSes perform tests on the level 2 or secondary cache to ensure that it is functioning correctly. The level 2 cache in the system is indicating a failure. Depending on the system, the boot may halt here or the system may automatically disable the cache and continue with the boot; the exact message you get should give you a hint about this.
Diagnosis: There is either a problem with the secondary cache itself, or with the motherboard.
