you build pcs and u dont know? look for a jumper beside the battery, make sure the pc is off first pull the jumper out its most likely red, and put it in the last 2 pins (its 3 pins total), then put it back in the orignal position.

a jumper looks something like this:

I have another thing that might work

DMI pool data is the computer checking the hard drives in some way for some information to boot, and in this case it looks like it's finding it hard to find the drive...

I've had this a few times, and even though it said it found the drive, it couldn't read from it, so it pasued n paused, because obviously it knew it was there but...sort of not....

I just dissconnected the IDE cable from the back, and put it in again, and pushed the motherboard one in a bit more because it was a bit loose. That fixed it! So obviously just a loose data connection between the two!

Hope this helps
