Title: [23 Nov 2010] Fort Sether's Illness
Post by: Cleo on November 24, 2010, 01:32:28 am
Many guards at Fort Sether have been falling ill recently. The local priestess - down the stairs in the main building - seems to think it has something to do with the water from the water wells. Could there be something more to it than that?

Requirements:
 - Level 15 or higher.

Shame I can't try out the new map updates. My comp has taken and still is as I'm typing this: "Verifying DMI Pool Data..." :P So, until someone helps me or unil my bro brings me his old comp I can't play.

Thanks.

Q. During bootup my computer hangs at "Verifying DMI pool data." What is it and how do I fix it?

A. DMI or DesktopManagement Interface (pdf) is a layer of abstraction between system components and the software that manages them. 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. The pool data is the information. 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.). If it isn't sucessful, it should return an error. Wait a reasonable period of time for it to finish. It may make take some time or it may be stuck. Possible fixes:

1. If you changed the hardware just before this problem occurred (e.g., installed a new hard disk drive), unchange it.

2. If you installed a new hard disk drive, set the motherboard CMOS Setup to Auto for the drive type. You may have to disconnect the drive first.

3. Enable "Reset Configuration Data" (may be "Force Update ESCD" in some CMOS Setuups) in the motherboard CMOS Setup PNP/PCI configuration. (Rebooting will automatically disabled it after it has done its thing.)

4. The CMOS may be corrupted. Clear it.

5. Disconnect all drives not required to boot the computer. If this fixes it, reconnect one at time.

6. The floppy drive may be bad or not connected properly.

7. Reseat all expansion boards.

8. Pull all boards not required to boot the computer.

Just a few things to try.... let me know if it helps

More than likely it's a software problem rather than a hardware problem. I heard you had a virus problem before so that sounds like the most probable cause.

Try hitting F8 just before the system boots up, which should bring up a few options. Try "Use Last Known Good Configuration" if it's there. That will revert your system files to what worked before. If that doesn't work and you have the Windows installation disc on you, you could try to attempt a system repair. Failing that, at least try using an Ubuntu live CD just to rule out any hardware problems.
