Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Acer Aspire T180

This is a recent problem:- When I go to log-on from shut-down the ACER logo comes up, then Verifying DMI Pool Data appears (used to for a second) and stays on. I then have to manually delete ( Ctrl+Alt + Del)then press F12 for Boot menu and enter on hard drive. It continues and allows me to log-on.

Can you please help?.

Thank you.

Ronnie

Check your removable media disk drives and make sure that you don't have like a jump drive or CD-Rom that the computer doesn't like. If that doesn't work, enter the BIOS setup (usually F2, F12, ESC or something like that....check the bottom of the screen.) and find the Boot Order settings & move hard drive to #1

Ensure that you havent got a cd in the cd rom then reboot, press F2 or Delete to enter the bios and look for boot options, set the primary boot to your harddrive press F10 and press y to save and exit the bios, Press F11 and set that to boot from harddrive and let the computer boot, if it still dosent boot to windows then the hdd has become faulty, or has been wiped of the operating system and windows will need to be reinstalled.

DMI Pool Data, Acer


You need a higher computer specification for Windows 7.

Acer Aspire T310 is design only for Windows XP Home/Professional and Windows 2000 according to Acer Support Page:

Disk read error-Verifying DMI Pool data... My


hello, Acer T180 comes with a SATA drive which are very reasonable priced these days. I think your system came with a 160GB hard drive (less than $50), you can probably get a 500GB for $50 bucks now.
here is a link to newegg for sata internal drive many of them free shiping for holiday season.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=internal+hard+drive+sata

you may come across few terms like "bare drive", "OEM", then there are regular ones. "bare drive" doens't come with wires(sata data & power connector), same with OEM- no wires, keep in mind OEM is genrally for resellers but i don't think anyone cares (:-) ).. since you are replacing the drive you have you can get by with any or these types. bare drive & OEM tend to be bit cheaper in price.

hope this helps

good Luck

Bios update failed *flash*


Did you make copy of your original bios before flashing...if yes then reflash with your original.
If No then trying reflashing again making sure no power cuts, dont touch computer until flashing is complete.
Are you using the correct bios for your MoBo?

Computer says something about verifying pool data


If it says something along the lines of verifying dmi pool data then you might have a problem with your BIOS ( the setup utility you refer to ). Here is a URL that describes a solution to this problem, it is pretty intense if you don't have at least above average computer skills - http://www.duxcw.com/faq/computer/dmi.html. Let me know if you need any further assistance with this.

Looks like the bios settings are not connect. Choose your First boot device as HDD, Save changes and restart. Let me know if it worked so that we can get this resolved..
