Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

Yea sorry, forgot that tid-bit of info. It,s the W3118 eMachine / Gateway FIC K8MC51G


Answers :

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

If\015\012the computer has no bootable files on the drive it is attempting to\015\012boot from it is possible that the computer may halt at " verifying dmi\015\012pool data..."

To resolve this issue:

Boot from a\015\012bootable floppy diskette. Ensure that this diskette was made on the\015\012same Microsoft Windows operating system that is installed on your\015\012computer.

Once at the A:\\> prompt type "sys c:" and press\015\012enter. This should report the message "File system transferred." Once\015\012transferred remove the diskette and reboot the computer.

If the\015\012computer continues to not boot attempt to re-create the master boot\015\012record by booting from the bootable floppy diskette again. Once at the\015\012A:\\> prompt type "fdisk /mbr" and press enter. This should return\015\012you to the prompt without giving you any message. Once at the prompt\015\012remove the diskette and reboot the computer.

Note: The above\015\012information only applies to Microsoft Windows users. If you are running\015\012a Linux / Unix variant or other operating system such as OS/2 and the\015\012computer is freezing at this DMI message ensure that Linux / Unix has\015\012been properly installed first and/or your boot manger is not corrupt.

Settings for hard disk drive are not correct

The\015\012computer freezing at "Verifying dmi pool data..." may be caused when\015\012the hard disk drive settings within CMOS are not set properly. Enter\015\012CMOS and verify that the hard disk drive settings are set properly\015\012and/or that it is set to Auto Detect.

Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue

Verify\015\012no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer. In some cases the computer\015\012may be trying to boot from either of these drives causing issues with\015\012the boot sequence.

Boot devices not set properly

The\015\012computer stopping at " verifying dmi pool data..." can be caused when\015\012the boot devices on your computer are not set properly in CMOS. First,\015\012verify that no CD or diskette is in your computer. If a CD or diskette\015\012is in the computer attempt to remove this first to determine if it was\015\012attempting to boot from it.

If No CD or diskette is in the\015\012computer and your computer still halts at the DMI message enter CMOS\015\012setup and verify that the boot options are set properly. We commonly\015\012recommend that the floppy be set the first boot device, hard drive as\015\012the second boot device and the CD-ROM as the third boot device.

BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly

If\015\012none of the above recommendations have resolved your issue attempt to\015\012reset the BIOS / CMOS settings to the factory or default settings.

Connections loose or disconnected

If\015\012the computer has been recently moved or new hardware has been installed\015\012in the computer it is possible that a connection may be loose or even\015\012disconnected. Verify that the hard disk drive, floppy and CD-ROM cables\015\012are properly connected.

Bad hard disk drive or other bad hardware

If\015\012you computer continues to freeze at the DMI message after attempting\015\012all of the above recommendations it is possible that the computer may\015\012be freezing because of a bad hard disk drive or other bad hardware in\015\012the computer.

Before replacing any hardware we first recommend you attempt to erase everything on the hard drive and start over.

If\015\012you're unable to get to the point of re-installing the operating system\015\012it's likely your computer has a hardware issue and it's suggested that\015\012the hard drive be replaced. If that doesn't resolve the issue then have\015\012the motherboard replaced.
