updating escd

My computer, goes thru the boot up routine (Win 95) the goes to Updating ESCD as normal, but just hangs up at this point.  Any ideas ???????????

i have waited for hours for it to boot up, no joy! unable to disable escd in bios ! I had all boards out and reassembled PC several times, checking for bad connections.

I agonized over this for an hour one time, turns out i had left a floppy disk in the drive.
This may not be your problem, but be sure not to over look the obvious ;)

How long have you actually waited at this point??  Most times the system will take a while before it returns an error message like "HDD 0 Failure" etc....  If you have been inside the computer before this happened, check ALL you cable connections/orientations.  If not, load you BIOS DEFAULTS and tell us what happens.

something similiar to mine whic hangs just afer ESCD part, where it says Verifying DMI. i think they might be related so i'm keeping an eye on this column as well.

maybe someone would explain what ESCD even means?

Set 'RESET PNP' in the bios or find the reset jumper on the mainboard to reset the PNP table information. The ESCD is a table for PNP devices. ESCD is Extended System Configuration Data.

DMI is the table that stores the BIOS PNP numbers for manufactures.
