    Smbios

    Running W8.1, At startup get message "Please check SMBIOS data & write correct value, The hardware configuration field is default value"
    PC Toshiba L70-B. This message started when I updated Windows. Toshiba says its OK and not a problem. Doesn't feel right.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks, Tom

    It seems your machine thinks it has an incorrect value in the BIOS. I would boot into the BIOS and reset to factory defaults as a starting point.

    cheers, Paul

    Paul T, thanks for your quick reply. I tried your suggestion and get the same message when I boot up. Everything seems to run OK, but the message doesn't seem right. Thanks, Tom
