Question about Acer Computers & Internet
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:
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.
