I already explained in the other post ..The action required is either install a 3rd party raid and ahci driver ..and if you do not have the possibility ..just c\go to bios and enable the hard disk bus to work as ide..(disable ahci mode) I'm not sure how it will appear ..but you have to look under the bus mode..where the hard disk is seen ..It will appear as ahci enabled..and need to be disabled or ..will have raid mode enabled..and need to set it as native ..or ide compatible

Can't find updated ACPI Bios for toshiba satellite m45 s331I am Getting blue screen Bios in this system not fully ACPI compliant.


Upgrading the bios it will not fix the issue ..cause the blue-screen is either a unsupported setting or..it is a operation system issue ..So ..if you get the blue-screen when you boot up ..and does not let you to get into bios..It may be the ACHI (not acpi ..cause the acpi is the power management ) being enabled and not having the driver installed..and in this mode will not be able to boot and will give you that blue screen ..
To fox it ..just go to bios ..and look for the hard disk ..and in teh same category you will see the achi function ..and just disable the mode..and let it run as IDE..This way it will boot fine ..
Indeed the achi mode for a hard disk bus..is faster and if you do want to use it ..try to boot without the achi enabled..and install the achi driver in the system ..and after that enable it again and see if it works..
If it still does monkey business than it will have to be reinstalled ..and if you still want achi for hdd mode..you have to install the driver during the installation progress..as a 3rd party driver ..
In short ..try to make it run ..and do not mess with the BIOS ..cause you may end up with a broken laptop ..

Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 notebook, os xp. Change hard drive couldn't use recovery disk, put in each driver from recovery disk after installing os. Blue screen states the bios in this system is not fully...


The thing is that windows xp ..usually does not have the drivers for teh acpi or achi mode and you need to get into bios and disable teh mode and let the hard disk to run in IDE compatible or sata as ide..
the function can be disabled in the same screen where teh hard disk and other sata and ide devices are presented..
After you disable the achi mode..it will work ..remember that you have to save changes with F10 before exit bios..
another way to make this work ..is install the windows xp in this mode..after you are done ..just install all drivers for it ..including raid and ahci drivers..and change it back from bios..It may work ..if it sees the drivers..
or ..you need to install the drivers when you get to teh press F6 to install 3rd party drivers....and you have to find a way to get them ...cause this operation is done usually b yusing a floppy diskette so ..to have a chance to do it .. you need to try to install them from a usb or install windows from usb and use the disk with drivers in the optical drive ..
If I would be in your place I would not complicate myself and just go to bios and change the bus mode for the hard disk ..save changes and reinstall operation system if needed..or go on from where it was..It will see the hard disk and no longer give you the blue screen

Aparece un mensaje de error no arranca windows por un problema con el acpi de la maquina.


If the blue screen appers when you boot up ..right after the windows screen is on ..and shuts it down ..than you have to get to BIOS settings ..and change the hard disk bus mode.. from raid or ahci ..into Ide compatible ..or native mode.. or sata as ide...depending on what you have available ..and after that save changes with f10 and restart ..It will boot up fine ..
After you get in windows you can install raid and ahci drivers and try to see if will work in the initial mode ..by changing back ..but if it does not work ..let it be ..and use it in ide mode..It not that mush difference anyway ..

Toshiba Satellite M45 S331 Use to power all the time.When we went to install old hard drive to load Windows Xp.It went to screen to start set,then it shut Down.It will Not Power up,Why?


remove eh hard disk and see if the laptop boots up at least to bios settings ..If it does ..I suggest to reinstall the computer but first go to bios and change the ahci mode for hdd into ide compatible or native ..and save changes..This will eliminate the need for 3rd party drivers and will install proper..
No matter what you have on the disk ..it can not do this right the way ...It need s the operation system in order to work and make damages..and if you wipe it out it will not be there anymore. (in case of a virus) ..
I suggest to use a disk to install and not the old recovery ..
let me know how it works and what it does..and I will further advice in this matter
