What sort of diskette ?
cd , floppy, dvd ?
First make a folder in your Kingston Driveclick start all programs accessories My Documents you will see your drive open then right click select new folder and name it which ever appropriate for an easy location find.
Example on how to copy data and download and save it to C: drive
Click start click on computer to open you should see your drives C: and your other drives cd dvd and your usb drive E: or F:
from there you select the files right click on the file/s right click copy navigate back to the drive right click select paste or hold the mouse cursor the file/s drag them drop them in to your C: drive usually My Documents where you have a New Folder Named.
Sounds like you've got some corrupted files. If you have your Windows disc, try a reinstall/repair or try to drop back to a previous restore point.
If those don't work, you might try to reformat/re-install your software. (backup your data if you can beforehand as reformatting will wipe all data from the drive).
This can even be a hardware problem, like the HD controller bad, which caused the file problem in the first place. Or a virus can cause such issues, which would make reformatting/reinstalling a good idea as well.
Make sure you have a defragment task running every month, if not every week. You can schedule to run at night or during the day, whenever you're not at the computer. If you turn it off when you're not using it, just leave it on that one day (or night) that the defragment needs to run... or start it manually before you go to sleep and unless it's a large drive, it should be done when you get up.
Make sure you do not have a diskette in the diskette drive, if you have one. Check the connections on the hard drive make sure they are all properly seated (on the system board as well as on the drive). Once this is done check to see if the system starts up. If the same error continues, take the hdd off and put it in another computer (make sure you have virus protection on it). Next take all of your files and copy them to a flash drive or cd. Once you have saved your files reinstall the hard drive on the original machine. Startup the machine and go to your setup menu and set your computer to boot from the cd rom drive. Install your windows cd in the cd rom drive and reboot your machine and reinstall windows, reinstall your programs from their respective disks, and copy your files from the backups you created to the flash drive or cd.
Good luck and remember to always backup your system. This will save time in the event this happens again.
This issue can be caused by any of the below reasons.
-Corrupt boot files on the computer. -Settings for hard disk drive are not correct. -Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue. -Boot devices not set properly. -BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly. -Connections loose or disconnected. -Bad Hard disk drive or other bad hardware. Solution:
Corrupt boot files on the computer
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
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
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.
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.
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
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.
Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue
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
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 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
none of the above recommendations have resolved your issue attempt to
reset the BIOS / CMOS settings to the factory or default settings.
Connections loose or disconnected
the computer has been recently moved or new hardware has been installed
in the computer it is possible that a connection may be loose or even
disconnected. Verify that the hard disk drive, floppy and CD-ROM cables
are properly connected.
Bad hard disk drive or other bad hardware
you computer continues to freeze at the DMI message after attempting
all of the above recommendations it is possible that the computer may
be freezing because of a bad hard disk drive or other bad hardware in
Before replacing any hardware we first recommend you attempt to erase everything on the hard drive and start over.
you're unable to get to the point of re-installing the operating system
it's likely your computer has a hardware issue and it's suggested that
the hard drive be replaced. If that doesn't resolve the issue then have
the motherboard replaced.
I am assuming by Diskett you mean a small flat disc 'bout 3"x3"Square)
1/. Use your burning program, when ADD Files comes up, select Drive A (Usually "A" is diskette drive) open,Add, Burn, ..Nero is pretty good. I2/. F you mean one of those SMALL round CD type , just do it the usual way, (Same as above actually, just substitute your CD Drive letter for "A".
Hope I'm right in interpreting your prom, if not someone else will pick it (me) up on it and correct it..
