Bought g900 notebook in april 2005, had problems out of the box system lockup and blue screen. www.acompinc.com said they sent it to mfg in China 2 times. Its been 5 months and still have same problem. Checked with Better Business and found out they operate under many different names with same phone number and same address in OHIO, USA, With Many complaints.DANGER! Buyer Beware! I think the P4 630 cpu is not compatible with Mother bord and or bios, Hyper thread not working and no setting in American Megatrends BIOS to enable HT...The Idots at www.acompinc.com formated my hard drive and claim they sent computer to mfg in China to replace a plug in TV tuner card and tha still does not work.

Re: www.acompinc.com is bad news
Hi there. Bluescreens and lockups, i first check for bad ram, or hard drive. Have you tried checking your ram chip(s) with Memtest86+ ? You get it for free at http://www.memtest.org/. If has both a floppy and cd version of it, and you can boot from on of those 2 formats to check your ram chips for failures.
If it tests ok, you might wanna check your hard drive also, there's many utilities out there that works for that. You might wanna check the drive manufacturer, then download and use the utility provided on their website to check it.
Hope that helps, cheebster.

Hi kala_mumbe, I know how you feel as my HP pavilion has had the same blue screen ansking for the 'drivelock multibay password' . the good news is i have fixed it just 5 mins ago. I think that you have to get into the bios first. Lets see if I can show you how I helped it to boot up:
at the blue screen I pressed the F10 Key which took me into setup
i then selected the security tab
and then I think I selected drivelock password
and then selected the "Notebook hard drive" item where I tried to disable, with no success
PLEASE NOTE: at this point I noticed that each time that i tried to disable the password it kept returning to the item 'Notebook hard drive' . I thought to myself that maybe this is the password and not just an item on the list, so I carefully wrote down .. Notebook hard drive .. taking note of capitalization and spaces and then exited setup.
I then noticed that there was nowhere to enter the password so i carefully typed .. Notebook hard drive .. onto the keyboard, and waited. After about 1 min a small 'OK' appeared inside the blue box and my heart leaped for joy inside my chest.
I waited... and a black screen apeared with the wite cursor blinking
and I waited... this time about 5 mins passed and then windows started to load. Thank God!
I hope you get some joy out of this post and it's not too late for your Campac Laptop. happy, happy Darryn Hope www.darrynhope.com
BSODs are usually drivers that fail. They can get updated by Windows update if you allow it. You need to find out what driver is causing the problem and replace it with the original. This site will help you determine what is causing the BSOD and then you can take corrective action
