Reboot your computer. Press Delete key several times while booting to go to your Bios Settings. Set your boot sequence as CD, Floppy, HDD. Save and Exit. Insert your Operating System Disc. It will bring you to an Operating System Installation. Reformat your New Harddrive. When successful reformatting of your new Harddrive is done, that's the time you can install your system drivers.

This kind of device its usually a plug and play thing. are u using it as a slave or a the master disc?? make sure the that u plugged it in the right spot, and that the jumpers are correctly positioned. if this isn't your problem, i would recommend doing a zap on it, and the formatting it

When I turn on my averatec all in one it just has the black screen that says [F5] key for HDD Recovery. How do I get past this or can it be fixed?


Your hard drive is failing or has failed. The recover process "F5" might overwrite your data so I don't recommend it. Install a new hard drive, install the operating system and drivers. Then install your old drive as a second drive and try to copy your data from the old drive to the new drive. If you don't follow what I am saying, you need to take the computer to a professional PC service center.

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.)

Need help!!!


depending on the brand... you need to press a function key (F2, F9, F10, or F12 keys) to get into the BIOS and you need to change the boot sequence to start booting on your CD or DVD drive. but the operating system disc should be in the disc drive before doing this.

Hard drive wont mount


From the information you have supplied I would suspect either the drive data has become corrupted, a hardware problem has occurred or perhaps a problem with the LaCie software drivers installed on the computer. Be careful throughout this process, if you are prompted to format the drive you definitely don?t want to do that. I would first try a known good data cable in place of the one you?re currently using. If that doesn?t change anything I would try plugging another peripheral into the data port of the computer to make sure its working. If all that fails the next step to isolate what the problem is would be to try to connect it to another computer if you have that option. You didn?t mention if this was Windows or Mac but to minimize potential problems I would stay with the same operating system and version. When you plug the drive in the other computer it should recognize the new hardware and install the drivers. If all goes well at some point you should be able to open the drive and see your data. If that?s the case then there is a problem with the other computer, probably software drivers. If you get the same result on the other computer that would probably indicate the data on the drive has been corrupted in some fashion. What you do after that will depend on how much the lost data is worth to you and how much you are willing to spend to recover it. Let me know what you turn up, more info such as your operating system will help as well.
