    I have an old pentium 233mhz computer was working fine til i tried putting more memory in it now it hangs at verifying dmi pool data. I have tried swapping memory it detects it and the hard drive is good and I have swapped cmos battery, disconnected all ide and power cables, cleared cmos jumper but still hangs.

    If it worked before with the old memory, then really the only thing that could have happened is damaging the memory with ESD or perhaps damaging a part on the board when working on it. The only other things I can think of are listed below.

    With a system this old, I would clean out the memory slots with a can of air before reseating the memory.

    It sounds like you have done all of the basic troubleshooting. Have you reseated the atx pw connector on the board? It is possible to knock something loose when inside the case.
