When i boot the computer it says verifing dmi pool


Hello there and welcome to fixya
A. DMI or DesktopManagement Interface (pdf) is a layer of abstraction between system components and the software that manages them. The System Management BIOS (SMBIOS) is an extension of the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) that formulates and delivers this information to the operating system. The pool data is the information. In short, when the BIOS is "Verifying DMI pool data" it is verifying the table of data it sends to the operating system (Windows, etc.). If it isn't sucessful, it should return an error. Wait a reasonable period of time for it to finish. It may make take some time or it may be stuck. Possible fixes:
1. If you changed the hardware just before this problem occurred (e.g., installed a new hard disk drive), unchange it.
2. If you installed a new hard disk drive, set the motherboard CMOS Setup to Auto for the drive type. You may have to disconnect the drive first.
3. Enable "Reset Configuration Data" (may be "Force Update ESCD" in some CMOS Setuups) in the motherboard CMOS Setup PNP/PCI configuration. (Rebooting will automatically disabled it after it has done its thing.)

I have an HP Pavillion a1412n ER891AA-ABA. We recently shipped our computers to Honduras (there now). the HP reads boot disk error, insert disk, which we have none. is there anyplace to download a...


Try this. HP's are notorious for having these. Since they were shipped(could have been shaking,etc.); this might work.
Take the side off of your tower. locate your CMOS battery on the motherboard.(looks like a watch battery;about the size of a nickel. Then plug up your computer(with the CMOS battery out), power on for at least 10 seconds. This will reset your system back to default settings. Now; re-install the CMOS battery, and power back on.
See if that fixes it...

Starts with disk drive 0 seek failure. hit f1to continue then blue screen with stop: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0X83AF9630, 0X8A6BC7B4, 0X8A6BC4B0) appears. Any help?


I have had this problem and had to reset the CMOS. Simply removing the CMOS battery is not always enough. Shut off your computer and disconnect the power. Then find the CMOS jumper, usually near the battery, and remove it, taking careful note of the pins it connected. Move it to the far pins and wait a few minutes. Then move it back to its original position, plug your computer back in and restart it. You may need your Windows disk to get everything working properly again.

You may be able to purchase a system disk from Compaq, otherwise, try any generic XP disk. It won't have any Compaq drivers, but at least you can reformat the C: drive and get XP on it.

Yea sorry, forgot that tid-bit of info. It,s the W3118 eMachine / Gateway FIC K8MC51G


This issue can be caused by any of the below reasons.

-Corrupt boot files on the computer.
-Settings for hard disk drive are not correct.
-Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue.
-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.

Solution:


Corrupt boot files on the computer

If the computer has no bootable files on the drive it is attempting to boot from it is possible that the computer may halt at " verifying dmi pool data..."

To resolve this issue:

Boot from a bootable floppy diskette. Ensure that this diskette was made on the same Microsoft Windows operating system that is installed on your computer.

Once at the A:\> prompt type "sys c:" and press enter. This should report the message "File system transferred." Once transferred remove the diskette and reboot the computer.

If the computer continues to not boot attempt to re-create the master boot record by booting from the bootable floppy diskette again. Once at the A:\> prompt type "fdisk /mbr" and press enter. This should return you to the prompt without giving you any message. Once at the prompt remove the diskette and reboot the computer.

Note: The above information only applies to Microsoft Windows users. If you are running a Linux / Unix variant or other operating system such as OS/2 and the computer is freezing at this DMI message ensure that Linux / Unix has been properly installed first and/or your boot manger is not corrupt.

Settings for hard disk drive are not correct

The computer freezing at "Verifying dmi pool data..." may be caused when the hard disk drive settings within CMOS are not set properly. Enter CMOS and verify that the hard disk drive settings are set properly and/or that it is set to Auto Detect.

Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue

Verify no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer. In some cases the computer may be trying to boot from either of these drives causing issues with the boot sequence.

Boot devices not set properly

The computer stopping at " verifying dmi pool data..." can be caused when the boot devices on your computer are not set properly in CMOS. First, verify that no CD or diskette is in your computer. If a CD or diskette is in the computer attempt to remove this first to determine if it was attempting to boot from it.

If No CD or diskette is in the computer and your computer still halts at the DMI message enter CMOS setup and verify that the boot options are set properly. We commonly recommend that the floppy be set the first boot device, hard drive as the second boot device and the CD-ROM as the third boot device.

BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly

If none of the above recommendations have resolved your issue attempt to reset the BIOS / CMOS settings to the factory or default settings.

Connections loose or disconnected

If the computer has been recently moved or new hardware has been installed in the computer it is possible that a connection may be loose or even disconnected. Verify that the hard disk drive, floppy and CD-ROM cables are properly connected.

Bad hard disk drive or other bad hardware

If you computer continues to freeze at the DMI message after attempting all of the above recommendations it is possible that the computer may be freezing because of a bad hard disk drive or other bad hardware in the computer.

Before replacing any hardware we first recommend you attempt to erase everything on the hard drive and start over.

If you're unable to get to the point of re-installing the operating system it's likely your computer has a hardware issue and it's suggested that the hard drive be replaced. If that doesn't resolve the issue then have the motherboard replaced.

Trubleshoot Motherboard


More than 70% of all computer problems are related to cabling and connections. Ensure all cables are connected and connected firmly. IDE and floppy ribbon cables and power cables can often go loose. Ensure microprocessor, memory modules, and adapters such as video card are inserted correctly and didn't "pop-up" due to vibration.
System has no power at all. Power light does not illuminate, fan inside the power supply does not turn on, and indicator light on keyboard does not turn on. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Power cable is unplugged. Visually inspect power cable. Make sure power cable is securely plugged in.
Defective power cable. Visual inspection, try another cable. Replace cable.
Power supply failure. Power cable and wall socket are OK, but system is still dead. Contact technical support
Faulty wall outlet;circuit breaker or fuse blown. Plug device into socket know to work and test. Use different socket, repair outlet, reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.



System inoperative. Keyboard lights are on, power indicator lights are lit, and hard drive is spinning. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Expansion card is partially dislodged from expansion slot on the motherboard. Turn off computer. Take cover off system unit.
Check all expansion cards to ensure they are securely seated in slots. Using even pressure on both ends of the expansion card, press down firmly on expansion card.
Defective floppy disk drive or tape drive. Turn system off.
Disconnect the cables from one of the floppy drives. Turn on the system, check to see if the keyboard operates normally. Repeat until you have located defective unit. Contact Technical Support.
Defective expansion card. Turn computer off.
Remove an expansion card. Make sure expansion card is secure in expansion socket.



System does not boot from hard disk drive, can be booted from floppy disk drive. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Connector between hard drive and system board unplugged. When attempting to run the FDISK utility described in the HARD DISK section of the manual you get a message, INVALID DRIVE SPECIFICATION. Check cable running form disk to disk controller on the board. Make sure both ends are securely plugged in; check the drive type in the Standard CMOS Setup (in your motherboard manual).
Damaged Hard Disk or Disk Controller. Format hard disk; if unable to do so, the hard disk may be defective. Contact Technical Support.
Hard Disk directory or FAT is scrambled. Run the FDISK program, format the hard drive(See HARD DRIVE section of manual). Copy your backup data back onto hard drive. Backing up the hard drive is extremely important. All Hard Disks are capable of breaking down at any time.



System only boots from Floppy Disk. Hard Disk can be read and applications can be used, but booting from Hard Disk is impossible. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Hard Disk boot program has been destroyed. A number of causes could be behind this. Back up data and applications files.
Reformat the Hard Drive as described in the Hard Drive section of the manual. Re-install applications and data using backup disks.



Error message reading "SECTOR NOT FOUND" or other error messages indication certain data is not allowed to be retrieved. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
A number of causes could be behind this. Use a file by file backup instead of an image backup to backup the Hard Disk. Back up any salvageable data. Then do a low level format, partition, and high level format of the hard drive( see Hard Disk section of your manual for instructions). Re-install all saved data when completed.



Disk formatted on IBM PS/2 will not operate with this system. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
The IBM PS/2 uses a different format than other computers. IBM PS/2 disk format will not work in an AT type computer. Format disk in the AT type computer insert disk into the IBM PS/2 and copy the files you wish.



After install an expansion card (network card, tape drive card, etc.) the system no longer works properly. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
No power to monitor. All or part of the system may be inoperable. The new card may work but a mouse or COM port may not work. Change the interrupt or RAM address on the new expansion card. See the documentation that came with the new card in order to change pin settings. many expansion devices come with proprietary software that will assist you in doing this.



Screen message says "Invalid Configuration" or "CMOS Failure." PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Incorrect information entered into the configuration (setup) program. Check the configuration program. Replace any incorrect information. Review system's equipment. Make sure correct information is in setup.



Screen is blank. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
No power to monitor. Power connectors may be loose or not plugged in. Check the power connectors to monitor and to system. Make sure monitor is connected to display card, change I/O address on network card if applicable.
Monitor not connected to computer. See instructions above.
Network card I/O address conflict. See instructions above.



System does not boot from hard disk drive, can be booted from floppy disk drive. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Connector between hard drive and system board unplugged. When attempting to run the FDISK utility described in the HARD DISK section of the manual you get a message, INVALID DRIVE SPECIFICATION.

I have a HP 8595c computer. I put a DVD in and it froze. I restarted the computer and now it won't boot up proberly. I get this message. "Non-System disk or disk error Replace and strike any key...


Non-System Disk or Disk Error results when the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) cannot find the boot sector or the master boot record is missing or damaged; i.e. the device does not have bootable media. The BIOS searches drives in the order usually specified in the CMOS Setup. This order is often, but not always, A: (floppy drive), C: (first partition on the hard disk)… The error will occur during startup if the CMOS is set so the BIOS seeks the floppy drive first and a non-bootable (or blank) floppy is in (was left in) the floppy drive. Other causes include:

No bootable partition on a hard disk drive
  • A defective hard disk drive
  • The CMOS drive settings (parameters) are not correct for the boot device
  • Defective floppy
  • Defective floppy drive
  • A virus

    Having problem installing Windows XP on My Acer Aspire T650 Computer


    Before you did the install did you make sure that you set your CMOS setting to check for a cd disk first before booting straight to the hard drive? When you do an install, you must make sure that the computer knows to look for a bootable disk otherwise it will look for an operating system to boot to first. If this is the problem, after you have installed your operating system you must go back and reset your CMOS settings to look for a hard drive or operating system. Hope this help and if it doesn't let me know for further assistance.
