easydatingsearch com - Updating data dmi

I cant recall exactly what it was that nudged me towards the conclusion that it was my two mass storage USB sticks plugged into my PC.I have my boot priority in my BIOS set to USB-HDD, CD Drive and then hard disk.

However, I then encountered different unusual behaviour. Google tells me that the source of problems similar to mine involve hardware and not software.

Since I don't even get to Grub2 boot loader, it can`t be a problem with Ubuntu or Windows.

I can see the contents of all my partitions, so I think I can safely rule out that it`s a faulty hard disk. Try booting into a live cd and running memtest86 or run "sudo dmidecode --type memory" from a terminal I had an identical problem to that plus when I could boot to a livecd it would say "dmi-table-broken-stop" in the hostname turned out to be bad ram "1Gb of PNY DDR2 Ram" [email protected]:~$ sudo dmidecode --type memory # dmidecode 2.11 SMBIOS 2.4 present.

If I was to hazard a guess I would go for the HDD/BIOS settings. Same with the first AMD processor I have that I couldn't send back. That's why I thought the 2nd HDD is crapping out on me. After reading Speedy Gonzales's post, maybe it is my MOBO. If it dies the shop should replace it, it doesnt matter if its OEM or whatever. Because another shop killed the mobo it was going to go on, I took it back to the shop I got it from. The shop (where I brought the AMD from) wasnt going to give me anything.
