Bios problem

When I boot it stops at Verifying Data Pool and also it says smbus cntrlr NA. I've tested my memory, and multiple hard drives. I'm pretty sure it has been narrowed down to a BIOS problem. Any help would be much appreciated.

  5. None of those helped.
  6. Make on some other PC a bootable OS on a CD or a stick, boot from it, backup all your important data and reinstall the OS.

  7. I tried to boot from my flash drive but it errored.
  8. I finally got the computer to boot with CD and am trying to repair but it says it cannot copy hidserv.inf. Is there a way to fix that or should I just hit skip and hope it works?
  9. Skip it, it's something related to keyboard shortcuts or something.
  10. I skipped it, and 3 others popped up. ie.inf, ieaccess.inf, and ims.inf. Skipped them all and in the end the problem is still there.
  11. Your OS is dead. What's good is that your BIOS is fine. You can save your data and reinstall the OS.
  12. How can I save the data?
  13. Boot from a USB or CD with those applications in the links above and write your data to some DVDs.
