I built the system 3 days ago, everything went well, no problems during
assembly, it booted right up and I installed the OS. The next day I
installed various software programs, went online, all was working well. Then
it wouldn't load Windows after I hit "restart", and I can't
figure out what the problem is. I get this message:
'Verifying DMI Pool Data............
"WARNING: EES is turned off !! Please use EES application to turn it on
again. Press any key to continue'"
Also, when I hit F12 to go into boot screen the computer
freezes up and I have to use the power button to turn off the pc.
Nothing happens when I press a key. I cleared CMOS, loaded fail-safe
defaults in BIOS, that didn't help. I took out the RAM and reinstalled it as
per Gigabyte tech support suggestion, it didn't help. The same error
message appears without any drives attached, after I disconnected the hard
drive and dvd drive.
