Help! - Verifying dmi pool data

I booted up my PC the other day (Windows XP Pro)

It's just hanging at "verifying dmi pool data... success"

I've googled and it could be a number of things apparently:

1) Faulty connection somewhere
2) Faulty HDD
3) Windows is fucked
4) RAM is fucked
5) Boot order is wrong

Could be anything really...

Anybody got any quick fixes for it? I've never had this happen to me before and really can't be arsed fannying around with it

It won't be a quick fix, if you can't be arsed to fanny about with it, throw it away. I'm sure the google results which told you what could be causing the error suggested a remedy for these causes as well.

It's a bit long in the tooth now anyway. I'd rather buy a new one and hook the hard drive up. It's on Windows XP ffs!

Hardware issue somewhere - verifying DMI Pool Data is before the computer has even begun to think about Windows so I'd probably rule that out.

Disconnect your peripherals including mouse, just have the keyboard connected, disconnect the hdd and cd, make sure the RAm is seated correctly and try resetting the bios.
