For that particular software you are using,,the ACPI thinks your Bios needs updating.
You can re flash the Bios to a newer version if one is available, and if one isn't available,,then i would suggest turning off the ACPI functions in your system Bios.
ACPI controls the power saving features of your machine via the software, also the power saving features on any legacy devices attached to your system.

APROBLEM HAS BEEN DETECTED AND WINDOWS HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER


While you may not be using a Windows 2000 computer, the error/cause is probably similar: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/256841
Try to manually install the Standard PC hardware abstraction layer (HAL):
  1. Reboot the computer to restart Setup.
  2. When Setup starts again, press F7 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. You should also contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a BIOS that is fully ACPI compliant.

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.

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.

I upgraded my memory fro 256 to 512 in my HP Brio BA200, and now it tells me that the BIOS is not AcPI compliant...what the heck do I do now????


If you perform an upgrade on the BIOS to enable ACPI on a computer that is already running Windows XP , you must reinstall the operating system to enable ACPI support.

low feed backs hurt my ratings and I am tring to help you with your problem,so let me know about the information i provided you is helpfull or not..
