You will need to go to the website for the motherboard manufacturer and download the updated drivers for that motherboard. This is common with all the changes that windows goes through in a life cycle.
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 or removed RAM from one slot and boot or check the bios update good day and rate solution if it helps
i think this is a p3 system or first generation pentium 4 ... ACPI is an advanced powermangment feature .which helps stand by , hibernate , etc..... and it also power the computer off when clicking shut down in windows ..... a bios update of the corresponding mother baord will do the thing ..
so that u need a fresh floppy disk and a working drive .. do it carefully . as negligence will cause the mobo to be useless
Hi meangmoeurn, what makes you think your bios is not ACPI complaint? Enter your bios & disable ACPI. The reason for this is windows must be fully updated. One windows has been fully updated you can turn on ACPI. Its a software issue. Read through this Microsoft link; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314088
If ur motherboard is not compatible with the hardwre then u dont have to worry about it. Try upgrading ur M/B Bios. with latest version. This BIOS (*.ROM) fie u'll get on ur M/B manufacturer site. Type ur model no in the search pane of that site and provide the Model no of ur mother board.
