With each mainboard there is a utily to maintain the DMI. Maybe you can clear the DMI with such a utility...?

If you have an AWARD BIOS do the steps below. If you have another BIOS try a similar approach:
In the CMOS Setup go to "PNP/PCI Configuration" then to "Reset Configuration Data" and change it to "Enable".
That should cure your problem.
The "Reset Configuration Data" will go back to it's "Disabled" state automatically so you don't have to worry about switching it back manually.
Try it.

I had this problem about a year ago. I'm quite sure that this something to do with the system files in the root on your c:\ drive, More specifically with the io.sys, Have a look if it's there, it might be corruptedor deleted don't forget it's hiden file, you don't multiple OS's, do you?. Make a backup copy of it then Sys your HD. If you have made a startup disk boot from it and type a:\sys c:
You might have to change a line on the msdos.sys. But give that a try first.
