View Full Version : Verifying DMI Pool Data error?

02-19-08, 02:18 PM
I ran into this error and I'm not sure if it's a harddisk error or my operating system. I am running Windows Vista 32 bit with a Raptor X harddrive. Everytime I boot up my computer it posts and everything, right before where it would say Verifying DMI Pool Data usually, it will freeze up and the underscore at the bottom of the screen just keeps blinking, after I restart once or twice everything will boot up fine I will get the Windows failed to start error and if I just click boot Windows normally everything is perfect. Has anyone run into this problem before? Any ideas on what's going on? Should I possibly just reinstall windows?

Also when I first built this computer it was perfectly fine, it started happening after a week or so and it's only after the computer has been off for at least a couple of hours.

Try clearing your cmos first. And when possible use the default BIOS settings.

Isn't DMI a part of the bios/cmos? Try reflashing to a newer or current bios (if no newever version is avalible). Make sure you do it from dos though (winflash may work, make sure its the entire bios though).

I used to get them on my friends DFI nForce 4 board.

edit, and ya, reset your CMOS while your at it
