Hey everyone,

When I try to turn on my machine, windows wont load, I just get the BIOS screen which says... "verifying DMI Pool Data"

I need to know how to fix this ASAP.

Thanks in advance.

Bios flash indeed.
But why not trying to set the bios to its defaults ? With the clear CMOS jumper on your mobo.
What's your mobo ? Your config ?

First maybe tell us what yer system config is, MoBo, Memory, HD, Vid Card, etc... And what you have done to it. Also did it boot at all. or is it something that just occured?

Did you tweek anything in the BIOS?

You could set all BIOS settings to default and reboot, see what happens.
Have you done a memory upgrade?
Check all connections to and from MoBo, HD, Memory Sticks (Modules) and all Cards that are installed.

Hey everyone...

I think the drive is totally dead. Luckily, a friend had an extra 40 gig hard drive lying around. I am now using that as the primary drive. My only question is, how can I set it up for the old one to be the slave to see if I can access my files?

If you removed it already, switch the jumper(s) on the back of the HD to the *Slave* position. I don't know what type of HD it is so I can't tell you what pins are what. You can go the the HD manufacturers web site and get that info.

Then reconnect the old HD to the ribbon cable, but on the second plug/connector. Not on the first one where you have the 40 GIG on. Make sure the 40 GIG is set to *Master* with it's jumper(s).

When you reboot it should be recognized by the BIOS and by Windows.

But it also depends on how bad the HD is, if it's DEAD-DEAD (does not spin up at all) you may not be able to access it at all.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
