just wondering if anyone can help with a bit of an odd problem.

when i turn my pc on it hangs at 'verifying dmi pool...' for 13 minutes (i timed it) and then proceeds to boot up normally.
all of the i can access the internet, use word, excel etc and the tv card on the pc works. however, when i try to play mp3's, or play a cd i get no sound. i know the audio cable is connected properly because i can hear sound when watching the tv.
do you think the two things are related?

im running windows m.e. if that helps.

any help appreciated.

See if there is an option in your BIOS to "Reset Configuration Data", set to "Yes", save and reboot.

Verifying DMI Pool Data......

This could be due to the following;
1. memory may not stable. - try use one stick of ram at a time.
2. Hardware conflicts - try remove all the unrelated add-on card.
3. Cmos data get corrupted. - Try clear Cmos.
4. Floppy drive is bad or not connected right. - make sure the cable is not loose and the red-stripe of the cable is line up with pin 1 of the Fdd drive.
5. Try unplug all the IDE devices and the floppy drive for now, and turn the system back on see if it advance further. -It should say "Disk boot failure ....",
6. Turn system off and connect the ide device one at a time, and find out which device causing the error.
