    Hi, everytime i boot my computer it says 'there is not enough space in the runtime area, smbios data will not be available'

    What does this mean, ive only just built this computer and i am dissapointed that crap like this is happening.

    My Mobo is a MSI K9N6SGM-V

    Have you installed an OS yet? Or is this as far as you can get period? Also, what bios version do you have right now?

    You may want to try removing the battery on the motherboard for a minute or so and removing and reseating the ram sticks, see if that has any affect.

    i built a msi motherboard years ago.
    this board might not have a battery.
    might have to take off a jumper.
    just a thought .

    So you have no way of getting into windows? Might be a good idea to give MSI a call and see what they have to say

    No No, the board is performing as it should. Just that initial error comes up and its something to do with the bios, what i want to know is how to stop it coming up

    If you can get into windows, then I would see if there is an update available to flash your bios. That should take care of it.

    Tried that of the msi live update thing, it already said the bios was up to date, what im considering is flashing the bios with a floppy disk maybe with an older bios version

    That may work, have you tried removing the battery or resetting the jumper first though?
