my pc eventually boots up, the way it does has left me very worried
i describe them in sequence
as soon as the mobo logo screen appears on power up from there it keeps restating it takes about 5 or six attempts,after that i get the message "verifying dmi pool data", after the message has dissapeared it either freezes or continues to start normally
anyone with the know how plz help???

Age of PC?

Make / Model?

could be CMOS battery voltage low BIOS losing settings or PSU starting to fail.

Also try first disabe Quick / FAst boot option in BIOS. This will let HDDS spin up to speed and be seen before BIOS fully boots.

motherboard k8n ne2 platinium

Would not expect CMOS battery and PSU to be bad on a new build.

Have you selected the default settings in the BIOS?


Have you upgraded the BIOS to the latest BIOS?

That AVX CD/DVD-ROM SCSI drive is an image drive

Do you have alcohol 120% or something similar as a drive emulator?
