    Hi:

    Problems...I tried installing a NIC and ME locked up at this point. I took it out, chose a different NIC and success. But now, after installing AVG and Adobe Reader, rebooting ends up at the point where ME is verifying DMI pool, and shows a few dots then locks up. Constant rebooting doesn't help. The possibility of a problem with the two software programs could be cleared if I could get to the desktop!

    Any help or suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for your time. Reply to email would be great.

    Try booting in "safe mode" then remove them. Still freezes?
    Try deleting the folders from DOS.

    c:\>rd /S progra~1\AVG will delete the dir and all files/dir's in the dir

    then try it, if it still happens, then you can remove the adobe program doing this same method

    c:\>rd /S progra~1\adobe

    If even none of this works, maybe it's your NIC? try turning off the pc and removing it, just a thought.

    Verifying DMI is a function of the BIOS not Windows. At the point where you're getting that message, Windows hasn't started to load yet. That message usually occurs when you add hardware or make BIOS changes but it shouldn't hang like your describing. What happens if you remove the card and boot like iq454 suggested?

    Good, glad to hear you're ok now ... Did it just stop doing the DMI pool verification or if not, what did you do to fix it?
