Try running a diagnostic on the hard drive if it has come with one, or try to update the BIOS to make sure that the fan attached to the computer is running at the correct speed. Also try to disable some of the startup applications at startup using MSCONFIG command. Make sure that you do not disable any windows service.

Whats the type of RAM in your system? DDR, SDRAM, etc are they the same speeds (ie DDR400 PC3200)? you know RAM runs better when in pairs and the same speed That could be your problem.
but You may get it to work from the BIOS settings by making sure all the RAM values are set to auto.

also verify from your manual. at times thre is a list of "prohibited" ways of filling RAM slots.
Your best bet would to get an identical piece and pair them just . That would probably work, although the mb would probably downshift the speed on the RAM .most DDR motherboard's are work best when all the RAM is identical

Hanging is just a minor problem of any pc. It just means that the system is hot. Just open up the system unit and make sure that the cpu, system and power pack fans are working. Also clean the system because of dust.

Desktop hangs at "verifying dmi pool data"


Hello here is the MSI homepage:

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/P4M900M2-L.html#/?div=Driver&os=Win7%2064

Here is an overwiev of the problem:

http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000474.htm

Try to go into your BIOS and make sure that the harddrive with the Windows installed is correctly set as the primary boot device. Choose the HDD as primary boot device, followed by CD-ROM/Floppy. Also make sure that the HDD is set to auto-detect within the BIOS utility.

If you have any discs or diskettes in the CD-ROM or floppy drive(s) then please remove these and try and boot up again, this is to make sure the system is not trying to boot from another device.

Make sure ALL cables are 100% connected to the system and are not loose at any scale. If any of the above does not work then try and reset the CMOS using the CMOS jumper.

If still nothing above fixes the issue then you may have to replace/fix the master boot record on the harddrive, or renew the harddrive as this may be the cause of the problem.

Good luck

PC BOOTS HALF WAY


Try booting into safe mode. If it's a driver problem, safe mode will allow you to start Windows with only the bare minimum of hardware and drivers being engaged. To get to safe mode, press the F8 button on your keyboard during the Windows boot process until it takes you to a screen to let you select Normal, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with networking, etc. I would suggest not using anything other than just Safe Mode. From there, uninstall any software or new drivers that you recently installed. Alternatively, you can use the System Restore feature to rollback to a previous restore point.

Bios hangs


Reseat all cards in system, including the RAM. If it still does not boot try removing one stick of ram at a time to see if it boots. As well as removing extra cards.

My system hangs after about 5mins after booting


If it happens at 'random' times, and won't restart immediately, most likley it's overheating due to dust blocked heat sink / fan (or a bad fan)

If it always happens at the some point in the boot up before you get the password prompt .. most likley it's s/w

Hit F8 during power up.. select 'last known good'

If that fails, F8 and select 'Safe Mode'

If you get into Safe Mode, uninstall whatever you last installed that is causing the lock up (most likley some hardware driver or some virus/root kit you got via email)

Update on Boot up problem with Versa P600


I have had this problem many many times at the Lab over the years, in fact I have even owned a PC that did exactly as you describe! ... What I found out was... SOME hard Drives seem to work OK, others??? It seems to be a "Timing" issue with the Hard Disk Controller.. There is NO FIX as such.. that I have ever found, Sometimes ya can find a brand of Drive that will work with.. ALWAYS.. but for the most part.. it's either put up with it.. OR get a new motherboard/PC. I have torn my hair out more than once as I said.. But essentially it is a Motherboard fault, specifically, the Hard Drive Controller, thats is at fault..
