One of our readers Sameer submitted a problem saying: “When I switch on my computer , it shows a error dmi event log space full press f1 to continue or f2 to enter setup.”

Let us see why this trouble occurs and what is DMI.


What is DMI logs?



DMI stands for Desktop Management Interface. It generates a standard framework for managing and tracking components in a desktop, notebook or server computer. It is implemented by the BIOS of computer. BIOS provides an option of maintaining DMI logs to analyze any errors which may occur. You can see the same in one of BIOS screen,en-circled in red color below below:

DMI options in BIOS

This Warning starts appearing when the logs are enabled and the space for the logs is full.

Lets see how can we fix this warning at start-up.


The Fix is really simple,lets go step by step:


1. Restart your computer and while its powering up, keep pressing DELETE Key on the keyboard, this will take you to the BIOS screen.

2. Go to Advanced Setup, find the DMI logs option. This option may be located under different menus under different types of BIOS interfaces.

3. Once you locate the option, Select the option to Clear the DMI logs and also disable DMI logging if you don’t need it.

4. Save changes and exit from BIOS. Restart you computer.


Done. Really that’s it, no more steps. We hope the procedure given above will help to fix the trouble.


  1. how to prevent warning msg “J:/autorun.exe” when a pen drive is connected to PC?

  2. Hi,

    I followed this procedure, and the pc started fine. But after I shut it down, it won’t boot up at all now.

    The monitor remains black, and its green light turns orange after a few seconds (probably indicating it has gone into the standby mode.)

    I tried to see if the xp start up sound comes up so that I can be sure whether it’s something with the monitor or the pc. I don’t hear any start up sound either.

    The keyboard seems to be on (the lights are on) and so is the mouse.

    What could be the issue?

    Thanks for all the help

    It seems like you have mistakenly disturbed some other setting in BIOS which is preventing your computer from booting. Open the BIOS and set it to default settings, save changes and exit. This should boot your computer.

  4. how about this one: the last time my pc was used, it was fine. no viruses at all, and i haven’t done anything with it out of the ordinary. i went out of town for a week and came back and the pc’s monitor just won’t work. the cpu seems to be working, the lights blink as if it is busy loading windows and updating its antivirus and all. so as the lights of the mouse and keyboard. the monitor, well, it’s led was green then i heard this soft click and then it turned orange. the screen was just black all throughout. i turned off the pc thru the keyboard (win button+u+u) and there was the signing off tune.
    i tried switching it with a working monitor, but still the same problem occurred.
    there’s just no way of getting into the BIOS settings.
    could it be the video card? btw, this pc is kinda old (4 yrs).

  5. I have the similar problem of DMI event log space full. I followed the procedure mentioned by Mr. Abhisekh. But when I go to setup the event log is disable. I am not able to clear the log. How to enable? Plz. let me know?
