Re: cant get newly built pc to start
Well, this problem can be caused by several reasons; ‘corrupt boot files, settings for hard drive are not correct, floppy or CD in drive causing issue, boot devices not set properly, BIOS corrupt or not set properly, connections loose or disconnected, or bad hard drive or other bad hardware.’

Sometimes this can be even simpler. Put in your Windows CD and boot to safe mode command prompt and type fixmbr. This will repair your master boot record for your primary boot harddisk. Eject the windows CD and reboot and see if it fixes your problem.
1. This means that Windows does not recognize the device. Unplug the DMI unit and shut down Windows 7 then restart. 2. Check the connection to the PC. 3. Your cable may not be sending the right signals to the PC 4. Check the Compatibility of the unit you are trying to connect to the PC with the Windows7 Compatibility troubleshooting tools built into Windows 7 .
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.
The Desktop Management Interface (DMI) is a new method of managing computers in an enterprise. The main component of DMI is the Management Information Format Database, or MIFD (the DMI Pool Data). This database contains all the information about the computing system and its components. At times, some systems may experience hang conditions after partitioning, formatting and initial bootup of a hard drive. The message, "Verifying DMI Pool Data" appears and the system hangs. This condition may continue after the drive has been removed. ! WARNING ! ALL SUGGESTIONS LISTED IN THIS INFORMATION BULLETIN ARE BIOS RELATED. FOR A PERMANENT SOLUTION, MAXTOR RECOMMENDS THAT USERS CONSULT THEIR SYSTEM OR MOTHERBOARD MANUFACTURER FOR BIOS UPGRADES. Suggestions to Resolve the Condition: 1.Apply power to the computer. 2.Access the system BIOS. Set the drive type as None or Not Installed. Load BIOS Defaults Load SETUP Defaults 3.Save the BIOS changes and reboot the PC to a System Boot Diskette. 4.Shut down the PC after the memory count is displayed. 5.Reconnect the power and interface cables to the hard drive. 6.Access the System BIOS. 7.Auto-Detect the hard drive. Ensure that the LBA Mode option is enabled. 8.Save the BIOS changes and boot the PC with a System Diskette. 9.Partition and format the hard drive via the operating system. 10.Reboot the system. On bootup, the screen should read: Verifying DMI Pool Data Update Successful The system should continue booting normally. Other Possible Solutions: 1.Apply power to the computer. 2.Access the System BIOS. 3.Disable both the Internal and External CPU Cache. These features are located in either the "BIOS Features" or "Advanced Settings" options of the BIOS Setup. NOTE: Consult the System or Motherboard User's Manual for exact location of the Internal and External CPU Cache settings. 4.Save the BIOS changes and reboot the PC to a System Boot Diskette. On bootup, the screen should read: Verifying DMI Pool Data Update Successful The system should continue booting normally. 5.After the system successfully boots, re-start the PC and access the system BIOS. 6.Enable the External CPU Cache. This feature is located in the "BIOS Features" or "Advanced Settings". NOTE: Consult the System or Motherboard User's Manual for exact location of the External CPU Cache setting. ! WARNING ! User's MUST re-enable this feature for optimal system performance. 7.Save the BIOS changes and reboot the PC to a System Boot Diskette. On bootup, the screen should read: Verifying DMI Pool Data Update Successful The system should continue booting normally. NOTE: If the aforementioned suggestions fail to resolve the issue, contact the system or motherboard manufacturer to: Remove the "Clear CMOS" Jumper and reset the system BIOS Obtain a Flash BIOS Upgrade
from pc help; SYSTEM HANGS AT MESSAGE: "VERIFYING DMA POOL DATA": You did not say what operating system you are running but I assume Windows 95 or 98. It is possible some Windows system files are corrupted or perhaps the system doesn't like your ram (if you added or installed ram recently). There is also a possibility that there is something wrong with your BIOS and you *may* have to update it, but I would avoid doing that if at all possible. A quick fix - if the problem is software related - is to: 1. boot to a Windows startup disk (one that matches your operating system). this step assumes that your PC is setup to boot to the A: drive before the C: drive (via the BIOS SETUP program). If you don't have a Windows startup disk, you will have to make one on another person's computer that has the same version of Windows. You make one via: my_computer/control_panel/add_remove_programs/startup_disk 2. run "scandisk c:" to make sure that any file corruption is fixed before going to next step 3. do a "sys c:" from the "a:" prompt to transfer a good copy of Windows system files to c: drive 4. remove the boot floppy, reboot the system and see if all is well. If that does not solve the problem you may have to reinstall Windows 95/98. Ouch! I recently had someone bring me a computer that had this DMI error message problem and I tried the "sys c:" method (with the startup disk) without success and had to entirely reinstall windows 95 (and almost all applications except for some programs that did not need to be placed in any Program Files directory or other special location) to cure the problem. However nasty a job that is, it did cure the problem.
