I just upgraded my computer with a new motherboard, HDD, PSU, and RAM. I installed windows XP Pro on my new HDD. I downloaded Everest Home Edition to check out some things, and when I try to view the DMI data it just says:

Warning Accuracy of DMI data cannot be guaranteed

I also noticed that when my computer starts, during the POST I get the following text before windows starts:

NPT Data Change...Update New Data to DMI!

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Try to clear your cmos by unplugging your computer and removing the cmos battery for a little while, unless there is a jumper to clear cmos then use that. Then reboot and see if that fixes your error on startup. If not you may want to update your BIOS.

Will clearing my CMOS upset anything in my Windows installation?

No, it just contains the vey basic information for your computer to run. When you clear the CMOS it just reverts your bios to the default configuration. It really has nothing to do with Windows.
