Bios non ACPI compliant - so it says!

When I try to boot up my computer I recieve a blue screen message saying that the bios is not ACPI compliant. I flashed the bios and all seemed to go well but the same message still keeps coming up. What can I do?

From memory I think it's a Athlon AMD 2600 with 512 Mb Ram and 80 Gb HDD. One of my main concerns is losing any data on the HDD. I don't think it is a problem with that though, it seems to get stuck before it gets into windows.

Try this, go to CMOS/BIOS setup and disable APM and legacy USB support. See whether the BSOD is coming back or not. Hope this help.

How do I solve this:blue screen appears on my computer and read the bios in this system is not fully ACPI compliant.please contact vendor for update

The best thing to do is explain your problem more clearly. By 'setup' do you mean entering bios or installing Windows? Are you trying to install Win7 on an old computer? What happenes if you just turn on your machine without pressing any keys?

I received a message that said my system was not ACPI compliant. I have no idea what that message is talking about. Can you help?

Whatever your doing, is not compatible with the current BIOS standard which in today's computer world is ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Poer Interface) post Windows 2000. Older BIOS systems versions used APM (Advanced Power Management). You must be trying to put in different hardware or something on your motherboard (computer) that is not compatible or functioning properly.

The bios in this system is not fully acpi compliant

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 pointed out are memory expansion, overclocking and incompatible driver software. Check out what you have recently installed or updated on your computer

removed RAM from one slot and boot
or check the bios update
good day and rate solution if it helps

ACPI is not a compliant

Enter you bios & disable ACPI. Restart the system. Than update your windows. There should be an update for ACPI through Microsoft update service. Once installed restart your system & enter into your bios. Now enable ACPI. Save & exit the bios.
If this does not help you can try the work around found on Microsoft's web site. See the link provided;

Can't get past bios post

If you can't even pass the POST your only option is attempt to flash the BIOS. Go to your motherboard manufacturer's website to find updated BIOS and instructions for your particular board.

Blue screen in A8N32 SLI Deluxe Motherboard which worked excellently-ACPI

I had this issue myself. It took a very long day of searching... but all I ended up having to do was disabling the parallel port in BIOS. (I even went so far as to update BIOS, and the bugger just wouldn't load past the Windows loading screen unless I turned off that stupid parallel port.

I know this solution is late, but maybe it could help.
