If you wanna go to BIOS setup it should be F1 or delete. PLease read the messages at startup. It should tell you which key you need to press for setup. But all BIOS dont have ACPI settings.
Hope it helps !!
Good luck !!

Blue screen of death says acpi bios noncompliance. Help!!


Did you change something in the bios? Enter the BIOS and check the Power Management or just Power settings and disable ACPI. This should solve the problem.Windows would again find new hardware and then should work normally.If ACPI not found under power it could also be under Advanced tab. Did you install any new hardware?.The hardware might be non ACPI compliant hence the error.

I load my computer and it just says my bios is not compatable with my acpi cpmliant what can i do?


It's possible that the BIOS setup has been accidentally set to non ACPI mode. Check in the setup to ensure ACPI is enabled.

Other possible causes that have been - memory expansion, overclocking and incompatible driver software. Check out what you have recently installed or updated on your computer.

Dell 8300 not loading xp home with the blue screen of death


To resolve this behavior, contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a BIOS that is fully ACPI compliant.

To work around this behavior, manually install the Standard PC hardware abstraction layer (HAL):
  1. Restart the computer to restart Setup.
  2. When Setup starts again, press F7 (not F6) when you see the "Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver" screen.
Windows automatically disables the installation of the ACPI HAL and installs the Standard PC HAL.

Computer Freezes During OS's (both xp and vista) setup.


This sounds like a HAL problem, have you tried to intall by disabling ACPI. You do this by hitting F7 during the screen that asked if you want to install additional drivers. You hit F6 to install additional drivers and F7 to skip the ACPI check. You can also hit F5 to try one of the ACPI layers that comes up. If you hit F7, this disables ACPI silently, you never see anything come up. If you hit F5 a screen will come up with some options, use the arrow buttons to scroll through the choices as only three choices show at a time.

I have seen on many forums that ACPI makes a lot of troubles to a lot of users under Windows. I will try to explain several things about ACPI and I hope that you will be able to solve your problems after you read this article. I cover only most encountered issues, but always there is a choice even if it's called ACPI disable.:)
The computer ACPI support is detected in the setup stage, but there are less frequent cases when ACPI is not detected and the Standard PC HAL is installed. If you want to force the installation of the ACPI HAL:
1. At the blue screen of the Windows XP setup when it prompts you to press F6 for additional mass storage devices press F5 and you will have a list of options.
2. Choose the proper HAL for your machine remembering that there are also different HALs for multiprocessor machines.
3. Complete the setup, go to Setup / Control Panel / System / Hardware / Device Manager / Computer. If you have listed the Advanced configuration and Power Management (ACPI) the process was completed successfully.
Warning: You can do the same thing if you don't want to install ACPI and your BIOS doesn't support ACPI disable setting. Just choose the Standard Computer HAL from the list of options.
Another method to disable ACPI is:
  • wait for the text-phase of XP setup to complete
  • before XP Setup Wizard to load, boot into DOS and change ACPIEnable = 0 from ACPIEnable = 1 in file c:\txtsetup.sif
The reason why ACPI is not installed on a computer with known ACPI compatibility may be a Microsoft known subtle incompatibility which can lead to hardware instability. In the installation step Windows XP checks the BIOS compatibility with ACPI and the BIOS presence on a known bad list. If the BIOS is there ACPI is not installed. Of course than errors can occur so you can force the ACPI installation (not recommended).

Try disabling it in the BIOS first, this can not be done on a computer with the operating system already installed as it will cause the machine to stop. MUST be done when you initially install the OPERATING SYSTEM.
Regards.
