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.

I need to disable tha acpi on an acer travelmate 529tx but i don't know how to do it. i am trying to install xp after a failure. i get bsod and says to press f7 when i install storage drivers but i need a...


I have seen on many forums that ACPI makes a lot of troubles to a lot of users under Windows. I will try to explain several things about ACPI and I hope that you will be able to solve your problems after you read this article. I cover only most encountered issues, but always there is a choice even if it's called ACPI disable.:)
The computer ACPI support is detected in the setup stage, but there are less frequent cases when ACPI is not detected and the Standard PC HAL is installed. If you want to force the installation of the ACPI HAL:
1. At the blue screen of the Windows XP setup when it prompts you to press F6 for additional mass storage devices press F5 and you will have a list of options.
2. Choose the proper HAL for your machine remembering that there are also different HALs for multiprocessor machines.
3. Complete the setup, go to Setup / Control Panel / System / Hardware / Device Manager / Computer. If you have listed the Advanced configuration and Power Management (ACPI) the process was completed successfully.
Warning: You can do the same thing if you don't want to install ACPI and your BIOS doesn't support ACPI disable setting. Just choose the Standard Computer HAL from the list of options.
Another method to disable ACPI is:
  • wait for the text-phase of XP setup to complete
  • before XP Setup Wizard to load, boot into DOS and change ACPIEnable = 0 from ACPIEnable = 1 in file c:\txtsetup.sif
The reason why ACPI is not installed on a computer with known ACPI compatibility may be a Microsoft known subtle incompatibility which can lead to hardware instability. In the installation step Windows XP checks the BIOS compatibility with ACPI and the BIOS presence on a known bad list. If the BIOS is there ACPI is not installed. Of course than errors can occur so you can force the ACPI installation (not recommended).

Try disabling it in the BIOS first, this can not be done on a computer with the operating system already installed as it will cause the machine to stop. MUST be done when you initially install the OPERATING SYSTEM.
Regards.

Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 installation problems


Hi speedfreak44, during the installation of windows one of the drivers did not install correctly & windows registry is messed up.
The blue screen is a typical response from windows. Even though you're windows installed SP2, there are another 89+ updates for SP2. (A reinstall with-out a format is not advised).
Suggest you enter you're bios & disable ACPI. This one I know for sure will show up in windows device manager as a PCI device with no name. Try again to boot windows. If it still fails to enter in standard mode than a complete re-install will be required including a format. Personally I do not use windows XP pro/home w/SP2 CD to perform the format, (After receiving a blue screen).
I have found it is 98% better to use the software tools, downloaded from the Mfg's web site for you're hard drive. Use the bootable software (On a floppy or CD), to format you're hard drive. Most Mfg's hard drive software will allow you to change the cluster size up. Windows standard uses a 4kb cluster size & you loose far more hard drive space. With a 16kb you loose only the file allocation or FAT, which is normal.
Than using the Win XP CD/SP2 install windows, clean.
(No need to format).
When finished installing windows, load the Gigabyte driver CD & install the chipset & other CD drivers. Turn on windows firewall & update windows SP2. (ASAP), (Save SP3 update for later).
It is in the updates of windows to iron out software & hardware driver updates. Do not install you're antivirus software until windows has finished updating its self & you install any hardware updates also through windows update. (Continue to leave the ACPI disabled in bios until updating is complete).
You can enable ACPI, antivirus software & printer software all.

You will find some needed software will install during windows update. Like; Quad Core processor update. With either home edition or pro it is advised to install .Net framework updates 1 at a time & only restart when prompted by windows. Other wise click the refresh button & continue windows updating. (You can save the .Net framework updates for last if you wish). You're video card may need .Net framework 2.0 or better for installation.
I am hell bent on installing windows once & correctly the first time. I understand you want to get this baby up & running but take the time & run the hard drive tools/utilities. (It's worth it)!

Good Luck speedfreak44!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

Please let me know if this got you're system running without the blue screens?
One last item. It's also worth checking the dates on the Gigabyte CD to Gigabyte's web site before installing other drivers. Including the chipset drivers. You want to install the newest drivers the first time around. Here is the link to you're Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 motherboard main web site.

Problem on o/s installation


Look in your bios & see if you can disable the ACPI, (which you should be able too do. Finish installing your OS. Than update the OS. After completing all updates re-enter your bios & enable the ACPI. You should not get that error message after re-start.
Boards that support ACPI will get this error during a fresh install untill they get windows updated. All OS's
Post back if this did not help! It worked for me.
