Hangs at Verifying DMI Pool Data?
 
Well this started happening a couple weeks ago and I just ignored it but it is really getting annoying. When I boot it is taking forever my screen hangs at verifying dmi pool data for around 1 minute which is really annoying. I also here some weird noises coming from what I assume is my hard drive. Could the problem be with the drive?

Done a sector scan of the hdd?

likely. Check the drive using the manufacturer's diagnostic utility.

Doing now forgot about that, checking a 1tb HD takes a long time lol. Weird thin is I've had since September with no problems

The most common thing I read about in reviews is either DOA or dying at 6 months or less for a hard drive, if it survives that, its in for the long haul it seems. Anyway, let us know.

Hmmm ok did a check for bad sectors but it said hard drive was in use so i scheduled for next boot and when i rebooted it scanned, only problem was i fell asleep while it was scanning so couldnt see the results before it logged in. Any way to see them in windows history or anything?

Try HD Tune, works in the windows environment. What kind of drive is this, the WD in your specs?

Goalieman077 January 29, 2010 02:48 PM

Goalieman077 January 29, 2010 09:58 PM

I tryed scanning for errors in hdtune but it said there were no errors.... any other ideas?

No ideas what else it could be any other hard drive tests?
