I´ve tried to update the bios at the msi website, but when entering the online update service the system suddenly reboots. I´ve found out that the same thing happens if I disable the acpi function in the bios. The o/s starts loading but after a few seconds the system reboots. If I turn the acpi on again the system loads all the way. I´ve tried both the msi online update service and their program "MSI Live monitor" and "MSI live update 3".
I suspect that the problem has something to do with the acpi function, but can´t find out exactly what it is?

Re: system reboots when acpi turned off
Hi martinkp, what you need is the update from windows. Leave you're acpi enabled withing the bios. Check windows update. Windows will update (windows software for the acpi). Rule of thumb concerning windows update. Check the dates of the updates & install in order, oldest to newest. This should fix you're system from shutting down. There will be no reason to turn off acpi after updating.

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; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314830
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
First reboot the computer and enter the bios screen. Disable the bios protect...
Then reboot back into the OS (Presumably windows) and download the bios update from the manufacturer website. It will probably be a zip file containg the bios and the flash utility. Unzip the file and you should have a windows and/or DOS flash utility. If not, the utility should be posted on the website. If the utility is Windows, simpy run the utility. It will ask for the location of your bios file. The update utility will do the rest for you. If the program is DOS, the procedure is similar. Move the utility and bios update into your root directory, reboot, and simpy run the program from the command line.
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.
