Yesterday i was playing a game called black and white 2, and after playing the game for an hour or so, my pc automatically shutdown. Once the computer tried to boot up, i got a message that was on a totally black background with grey text, stating
"Verifying DMI pool data, please insert a boot disk and press enter". Then i decided to put off the computer and give it a rest. And then after an hour or so i started the computer, windows was able to boot up correctly , and from there my pc was able to work properly for the next 10-12 hours.
Now today, i installed a game called Age of empires today and then i got to the main menu of the game. And i didnt even start playing it, i left the game right there on the main menu for about 10-15 minutes, because i had to go and do something else. Then when i came back i noticed it froze. then i restarted the computer and got the same message
"Verifying DMI pool data, please insert a boot disk and press enter".
From there i left the pc off for an hour or so, and now it can boot properly...
Now, im really not sure what could be the cause of this. Could it be that the hard drive could be messing up a little, or that my powersupply is getting really weak (i have a 350W psu that came with my case, and i have also disconnected the dvd-drive also).... Does anyone know whats really wrong with my pc ?
