Verifying DMI pool data????

1507 Views 38 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Smitty099
First of all, what in the world does that mean? Second of all, when I first built my rig (like 4 days ago), it would start up, and say this for about .5 seconds, but now it shows it for like 15. Is there any way to make it show for less? Did this occur, because I changed stuff in BIOS?

yes it happened because u changed ur bios data and if i am correct its specifically due to inconsistent data about either ur cpu or ur ram...

u can first of all check all parameters to see if they are right and there are some mobos in which u can set the dmi pool timeout...

but check ur parameters again coz the moment u correct them the timeout will stop appearing...

it only happens when one of ur setting is out of order at least as far as i have personally experienced...

ocers when they get this... i guess they just generally realize something is wrong and go about fixing it..

just my experiences...

unfortunately i think in that case ur system is not set properly or ur bios option for dmi check is enabled...u might want to check ur bios manual and ur bios setting before refuting what ppl say....also his problem was it was running for 15 seconds which is usually too long for a dmi check

so plz check ur bios setup and ur bios document b4 u comment further..


as for the performance setting if u want to oc ur system i wouldnt suggest you do that but if u r content on just running ur system without touching anything else then go ahead with the performance setting default..

if ur mobo mfg releases a new release bios its always better to update the bios especially if 1. u havent updated for some time and 2. every1 says that is a more stable and reliable bios update...

edit: what are u actually adjusting on ur ram? and by how much? ur ram seems to me to pretty good stuff for oc so something is not right here..

yup i agree with enterprise coz i am sure the driver was written by biostar to take advantage of the athlon capability in windows environment....

yes as the man says swap ur ram to different slots...and another thing run memtest on it...might indicate if u have a ram problem...but remember that patriot has a lot of tweaking to do b4 its actually stable but when it happens it is a sweet girl...


also to beserk...it happens to the best of us and u r trying in any case...

i m sorry mate..checking to bed now will try to be more specific tomorrow...but check ur mobo and see if the slots are numbered 1 & 3 as in the slots where the rams are plugged in right now...otherwise u might have to reseat them accordingly..usually dual channel rams must be physically plugged in into either slot 1 & 3 or slots 2 & 4....check the physical numbering on mobo or check ur manual to see the number
