Aspire 1700 needs to be acpi compliant, to run windows 7 help needed


Advanced Configuration and Power Interface

(ACPI) specification provides an open standard for device configuration and power management by the operating system.

Windows 7 absolutely requires ACPI 2.0 for power management.
Your laptop only supports ACPI 1.0. Windows 7 will never load

I think Vista is the most advanced version you could install.
I really like XP as the speed is so much faster.

Keep Smiling :)

Bios is not ACPI complaint


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 are memory expansion, overclocking and incompatible driver software. Check out what you have recently installed or updated on your computer.This can occur if Windows has detected that the BIOS in the computer is not fully compliant with Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI). To correct this problem, contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a BIOS update that is fully ACPI compliant. (If your PC is an older model, a BIOS update may not be available). There are third party companies that will write a BIOS update for your computer for a fee which may make it more cost effective to replace your computer.You may also find help on this Microsoft Support Site.

A problem detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your comp. I this is first time that u have seen this stop error screen restart pc. If this screen appears again follow these...


This happens when your operating has a problem with it's hardware, e.g or ram etc. Also some windows major files like DLL are gone missing by chance. Try to restart the Pc and press f8 until you get the options to start in safe mode, If safe mode dosn't works and gives the same informaton, try to make a backup of your filesby using the external hard drive, whereby you will need any other computer to make this backup, from your own hard drive. After doing this, you can format the hard drive and load operating system on it, if you know how to do this. You haven't mentioned the operating system you have in your pc, if you have vista or win 7. by pressing f8 key will aslo give you options, e.g..repair, run computer to last known configuration etc. Hope this works, or you can also go online help with service tech.

ACPI BIOS not fully compliant


w8000 a very old PC not supported by HP.
windows 2000 support ended like 15 years ago.. W2k. is gone. w2k only runs on very old pcs with very old ACPI
(power controls is that)

this PC is only supported with XP
never 2000.
HP tells you that if you looked.
park the 2000 disk or use it as frezzbee. IMO

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/compaq-evo-workstation-w8000/322279


id get w7 disk and use that, it might work.
but will cost you a license from MS,
about 5 times the value of w8000

why not just go here, and get used $20 w7 pc
save a bundle of case and grief messing with any legacy junk....avoid legacy junk and win.

Dell Inspiron 1100 Bios and ACPI


Please contact your system vendor for an updated bios. If you are unable to obtain an updated bios or the latest bios supplied by your vendor is not ACPI compliant, you can turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable ACPI and allow you to continue your installation."

RESOLUTION
Manually install the Standard PC hardware abstraction layer (HAL):
1. Reboot the computer to restart Setup.
2. When Setup starts again, press F7 when you see the "Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver" screen.
Windows automatically disables the installation of the ACPI HAL and installs the Standard PC HAL. You should also contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a BIOS that is fully ACPI compliant

The BIOS in the system is not fully ACPI compliant. I want to updated BIOS. How can I do?


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

Update for ACPI, (Windows update);
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=B0FF829D-C427-4F40-BC56-F481837EFFBE&displaylang=en
The above update should be included with other updates. This is why I suggested the above.
If you still feel you need to update your bios,
(Flash Utility software). I'll need the motherboard model number & manufacture's name.

Good luck meangmoeurn!
Feel free to correct me on this issue.
Thank you for using fixya.

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.

Read the M/B manual to upgrade your BIOS.
