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.

Computers comes on and it goes to verifying dmi pool data and comes back with error msg....or after its been unplug for awhile it goes back to normal but after awhile it freezes up and then when hard reset...


During the verifying dmi pool data stage of boot, the Motherboard is trying to 'poll' the devices in your PC. This is governed by the BIOS settings in the CMOS chip. It is possible to have a defective CMOS chip, but rare. It is possible to have invalid or corrupted BIOS data in the CMOS chip--which can be cleared to a 'default' state. You stated that if it is unplugged for a time, that it will 'go back to normal', the corruption is being reset. If your BIOS is set to be 'shadowed into memory' for faster loading, then Disable that feature and see if the problem is corrected.
You would need to open the Tower and locate the Motherboard Model (like P5SD2-VM) then look on the internet for the Manual for that model and see if there are any BIOS settings for the 'shadowing' of the BIOS.

This problem can also occur if there are SATA drives in the Tower and 1 or more are not being detected, (depending on the BIOS MFR,) this happens to older boards with SATA ports, much more than late model ones; so while you have that side-panel off, remove and re-connect all of your Power and Data cables to the Hard drives and the Optical drives, (CD/DVD.)

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

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.
