DMI Pool error?

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I think the problem might be OS related. If not, sorry for the fumble on my first post.

The other day I took the can of air to my computer insides to clean out the five pound dust balls. After bringing the box back inside and reconnecting the cables, I rebooted and after the POST was done I got the following message:

Verifing DMI Pool . . .

I always get this but on this occasion it was followed with:

Error, press any key to reboot.

But pressing any key simply got me another note that there was an error and that I should press a key to reboot. I went into the BIOS to see what I could find and after fiddling with this for a while with no success, I put the BIOS settings to Fail Safe Defaults and the system finally booted up just fine. But I'm worried even though everything seems to be working fine, that something might be failing hardware wise. If it's just something in WinXP I'll reinstall if I have to, that doesn't bother me.

Has anyone seen this before, or can anyone tell me what the DMI Pool is?

Thanx, inaminit


I'm running a Homemade:
AMD 750 mhz, 512 mb, BioStar motherboard, Award Modular BIOS, WinXP Home

sounds like you have knocked a cable loose m8.

This issue can be caused by any of the following:

Corrupt boot files on the computer.
Settings for hard disk drive are not correct.
Boot devices not set properly.
BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly.
Connections loose or disconnected.
Bad Hard disk drive or other bad hardware.
Additional information:

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
