Hey there

The most common cause is that setup does not have the driver for a SCSI device or is detecting storage devices in the wrong order, such as that CD-ROM drive first.
Press F6 when setup first starts and provide a driver for the mass storage device that will hold the operating system files.

Check to make sure all adapters and controllers are working properly.
Check power to all devices. Reseat adapters and controllers.

For SCSI devices ensure:
1. The SCSI cabling is properly installed.
2. SCSI devices are terminated.
3. SCSI devices are correctly addressed. And
4. The BIOS correctly recognizes all SCSI adapters.
Also, be sure the SCSI boot drive is addressed as 0.

Check the manufacturer's recommedation for configuring SCSI adapter and Hard Disk Drives. Try replacing the adapter before replcing the drive(s).

For EIDE Drives:
1. Check the controller.
2. Ensure file I/O and disk access are set to standard. And
3. Ensure that the system drive is the first device recognized by the controller.

For IDE and ESDI drives:
1.Check the cabliing and controller.
2. Check the Drive setup in the BIOS for master/slave relationships. And
3. Ensure the drive is properly recognized in the BIOS.

Gimme acknowledge by rating me.

thanx

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.

BIOS UPGRADE


what make and model is the PC?
if you have the hard drive cd from the manufacture then you should be able to install it.
you need to hit F6 during bootup, when you install the Windows Xp from a CD watch it very carefully, during the first few seconds. the bootup will ask for additional hard drive driver. that is when you hit F6 and follow the instruction. don't do anything till it ask for it.

ACPI error message


Hey there rcrozier, your solution is to disable ACPI in the BIOS. To do so, follow these steps. 1/ When set up is loading, a blue screen will appear asking if you have RAID devices, indicating pressing F6. Instead press and hold F7. This should prevent ACPI from installing. Alternately at the blue screen mentioned above, press F5 and hold. It should advance eventually to a new screen prompting you to press F2. Keep holding F5. It will give you another screen telling you it cannot recognize your pc type. It gives you two choices: standard pc or other. Choose standard pc. resulting in ACPI not being installed. Unfortunately the other result of this ACPI not being installed is that your power management will be reduced. Overclocking is not advised. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

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.
