Since then it's got a verifying DMI pool data hangup. My computer was last used by someone to download games and watch videos on the internet. I am constantly getting these fake spyware removal pop ups.
Following others advice in the forum, I removed the CMOS battery, I have reset the configuration data in BIOS, I received the UPDATING ESCD... I tried going into control panel/add-remove programs and I get a 'rundll32.exe' error message. A few days ago, my laptop randomly rebooted, and would not boot correctly, even in safe mode.
The System Management BIOS (SMBIOS) is an extension of the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) that formulates and delivers this information to the operating system. In short, when the BIOS is "Verifying DMI pool data" it is verifying the table of data it sends to the operating system (Windows, etc.).
Success" after adding or removing hardware on the next boot-up only, then this is normal for many BIOSes, and no action is required.
* If the system displays the message every time the PC boots, then there may be a conflict between the BIOS and the operating system.
Disconnect all drives not required to boot the computer.
The floppy drive may be bad or not connected properly.
