I built my daughter a computer for Christmas and put 64 bit Win7 on it. I was on it yesterday after it hung on her and when I rebooted I saw "Update DMI Pool Data" when it went through the BIOS screens before it booted up windows. What does this mean and what should I do?

I think that showed up on mine once after a windows update. I can't remember though.

I assume, it'd be "verifying" not "update".

Nope. It say Update DMI Pool Data. It comes AFTER verifying DMI Pool Data. I wondered if I should have flashed the BIOS when I built it before I put the OS on.

EDIT: It doesn't cause a run stop or I would have noticed it earlier. It's always the last thing on that screen (can't remember if it's the first or second screen) before it jumps to the next one. WHen I saw it, I rebooted to make sure what I saw.

No. Because I wasn't getting a run stop i didn't think it was applicable. (they don't have the embarrassed emoticon here). I just read it again and had a suspicion. The HDD I out in is about 5 years old and although it came out of my old computer it literally was never used. Do you suppose it could be bad? I mean it is a generic HDD from a Dell so it's not like it's a high quality or name brand HDD. That was option 7 (Bad Hard disk drive or other bad hardware).

The only other option that could apply would be option 5, BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly, but that doesn't help me. I set them all to what I thought was correct. If they aren't I have no way of knowing which is wrong or WHY it's wrong.

I was really hoping someone would tell me to flash my BIOS lol. I know, I'm being lazy not researching what DMI pool data is.............

Thanks.

EDIT: Are you admin at that site? I think I lost my user name and password there when my other HDD died.

EDIT II: Nevermind. I logged in.
