Not enough space in runtime area!!SMBIOS data will not be available.

Okay, I got this PC last week. After installing a new graphics adapter the system started to show up the message in subject during power up. Pressing F2 bypasses the message and system boots normally, but it's not good that i have to attend to boot process. Making some digging I found out that it =might= be fixed by a bios update. Being skeptical I decided to give it a shot. But to my surprise, there is no bios update available for the product I have.

I have a Compaq 500B mini tower desktop PC with 2GB or RAM and E5300 CPU. it's motherboard says : H-IG41-uATX, REV:1.0, which I think is a product of Foxconn, which they have no information of. I seem to hit a dead end. I've looked for the HP products which might have the same mobo without any luck.

So; is there a way to fix this issue? If a bios update can really fix it; can any one point out the bios update file to download?

BIOS Revision : 5.05 09/25/09
Core version : 08.00.15

If it's possible to dump bios(not sure if hp/foxconn allow this); some one with the same bios could be of help as well.

it could be a power-problem

(HP office desktops have 180W PSU; tower maybe 300W)

Re: Not enough space in runtime area!!SMBIOS data will not be available.

Other than the message shown, system works just perfect. No problems at all. 500B specifications and the writings on PSU say that the PSU is 300W . I think that the computer would more problems if it was power issue. And the system would return to normal after removing the graphics card. But the message is persistent, it did not go away even if I removed the card. So, still at the same point. Thank you by the way for your time.
