So I just completed my first pc build and it turned on without a hitch, however I have ran into a problem. Everytime my machine boots I get to the logo screen with no issues however when I push my mobo's BIOS key (delete key) it shows the POST screen for less than a second (sometimes not at all) and then a black screen appears listing my PCI or IDE controller info, then below the list it says Verifying DMI pool data. I actually have no clue what it is, i'm not to good with computers so I posted a picture below. Then a few seconds after that appears windows loads up and I can use my computer normally with absolutely no problems. Before I had installed windows 7 64bit that exact same screen appeared while I was trying to get into the BIOS, except it said something like, Disc boot error insert OS disc, so I did and windows installed. Sorry if this isn't the most descriptive question but I tried to give you guys as much as I know. Other than this problem my computer functions normally but I need to get into the BIOS to change somethings. Any ideas? Sometimes I can push tab to see the POST screen manually and it works but seconds later it goes right into the same black screen. It can't be my keyboard because I can push F12 and get the Boot menu to choose the boot device without going in the BIOS so it has to be another issue.
It shows the logo screen
Then after pushing delete it does not go to BIOS it shows this screen
Then windows boots up normally, i'm puzzled?

The fact that you are seeing the PCI/DMI screen means that you have alreadymissed the 'BIOS entry' point! Reboot, and 'peck at' that <DEL> key like a little woodpecker, until you get in; then, go to the "Advanced BIOS Features" page, and 'disable' the "Full Screen LOGO Show" item - for unknown reasons, it makes the entry point easier to 'hit'... Do an <F10> to save and exit, and, on the reboot, it should be a bit simpler, plus, you'll 'see' more of the POST, which can give you valuable info!
