    acer Aspire desktop t-180 ED380M

    I have done all the following and combinations of them that I can imagine:

    Reset the default settings (many times)

    Removed the battery

    Disconnected DVD drive

    Connected another DVD drive that worked in another computer

    Disconnected hard drive

    Connected another bootable hard drive

    Changed boot order

    Used a boot disk in the hard drive.

    Unplugged all Ram but 1 GB stick

    Tried another 1 GM stick

    unplugged and replugged in hard drive cables

    In the bios, the computer recognizes the DVD and hard drives, but it never gets to them.
    It was working at one point about a week ago. All seemed fine then except it did not recognize the DVD drive even if I uninstalled/installed the proper driver.

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.)

This Acer AST 160 I'm working on crashed...

Computer stops at verifying dmi pool data. Issue: Computer stops at verifying dmi pool data.
Cause: This issue can be caused by any of the below reasons.
  1. Corrupt boot files on the computer.
  2. Settings for hard disk drive are not correct.
  3. Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue.
  4. Boot devices not set properly.
  5. BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly.
  6. Connections loose or disconnected.
  7. 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.
Additional information about the "fdisk /mbr" command can be found on document CH000175.
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. Additional information about entering CMOS setup is found on document CH000192.
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 (steps found on document CH000192) 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

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 - Let me know if you need any further assistance with this.
