oh sorry. in my bios, it says the default setting for the SERR DMI message is ON, but it doesn't say what it is for.

DMI

(Desktop Management Interface). DMI-enabled PCs can be monitored from a central management console in the network.

some vid cards require it to be set to "off" in order to work correctly, but it will not improve ur comp to turn it off.

what do you mean by "monitoring"? like recording error messages and improper shutdowns, stuff like that? i'd imagine their control is somewhat limited, right? just curious..

different levels of monitoring, such as a central computer can (if hooke dup correctly of course) view ur monitor at the same time u are on their screen. some can be controlled by the central comp mouse and keyboard, but the DMI is purely for the visual of the monitor. so its not so much control, but view. and ur not wired for this anyway im pretty sure.
