Disable ACPI

Q: Disable ACPI

Building a computer for a friend and every time I got to the setup screen to install XP I could do nothing at all and legacy USB support enabled in BIOS and I tried many things and I read something about disabling ACPI in the BIOS and I tried that and it worked. What I don't understand is I had the exact same motherboard before and I never had to disable ACPI. What is the reason ACPI would be interfering with the install of XP or is there something more to this?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

XP is an old Operating System and it was designed for use on much lesser hardware than is available today. I imagine that XP will install with ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) enabled on some motherboards/BIOS and not on others

Hello, i have a Compaq Armada 1700. This computer is from 1997 or 1996, so it doesn't support ACPI. I just want to make sure, to disable ACPI, when i install Windows 2000, when it says "Press F6 to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver", i should press F7 and this just disables ACPI so when i turn my computer off it says "It's now safe to turn off your computer". So i should just press F7? I just want to make this sure. So i don't start up my computer, and when 2000 boots, i just get a BSoD that says i should press F7 during the text-based part of setup or something.Thanks for any answer.

My old XP has been acting up, I don't use this one much anymore. When it starts an error screen appears. It reports that the BIOS in the system is not fully ACPI compliant and to upgrade it, the problem is there is no BIOS that will upgrade this feature for the rvision of the mobo I have. THe message also says I can disable ACPI mode during "text mode setup" by pressing the F7 key when prompted to install storage drivers.

I have tried the last known good configuration but to no avail.

I don't wish to update BIOS but how can I disable ACPI during text mode setup. When I boot hitting F7 nothing happens.
how do I get to tex mode setup?

A:how to: disable mousepad on win8? no 'disable' button

That is not a Windows function so you cannot disable it in Windows without disabling the entire driver, which is not a good idea. Sadly you failed to tell us anything about your computer. Assuming a notebook, you need to look at your key labels or in your manual to see how to disable the pad. It typically is a Function key combination. On my Toshiba, Fn + F9 will disable/enable the touchpad.

Q: Acpi

Hi there, can someone help me here? When you go to device manager, under 'Computer' it should read 'Advance Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC' ok? Well, after much messing around a few months back I had this changed to read 'Standard PC'!!!!!!! Don't ask me how I did it but can someone tell me how to revert it back to ACPI?

Also, my PC never shuts down totally, the screen goes off but the PC is still running.!


Actually, come to think of it, this may be related!


Welcome to TSF

Go to Advance Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC > Properties and Rollback the Driver.

Also try this:
Click Start>Control Panel and then double-click Power Options.

Note If you are using Windows XP, click Switch to Classic View in Control Panel to more easily follow these steps.

Click the APM tab.

Note If you are using multiple monitors, the APM tab may not be available.

Select Enable Advanced Power Management Support, and then click OK.

I turn it on and asks me to insert boot disk.

I don't have a boot disk so I inserted the Windows 2000 server disk into the CD-ROM to see if it could/would resolve my problem.

It went throughthe set-up process (blue screen) and then came up with a ACPI.SYS CORRUPTION ERROR.

So yea, I have another PC, my second pc, my old on that I built. It's running an iWill DK8N motherboard with dual opterons in it. Now the board SUPPORTS and the Bios says ACPI 2.0 is turned on and all that, except if you try install windows Vista or windows 7 on it, it instantly BSOD's with some error that leads to microsoft's site that says something about checking if it's ACPI 2.0.

Any ideas? I have the latest bios update that was available from the site.

I guess, you haven't turned it on in the bios then!

Atleast in my AMI bios [I have an ASUS mobo] I have to select it as shown below:

So, just enter the appropriate menu in the CMOS Setup and turn it on!

Instead of tinkering with the Registry { Not Advisable } , uninstall the exclamation { Yellow Triangle ] drivers and if prompted remove from PC.
Then reinstall the drivers from your Mobo Disc or from the Mobo Website as applicable.
Then when done Reboot PC and connect USB External Drive and it should install ok.
If you still have issues , rescan Device Manager , and any with issues , right Click and select Properties and select Details tab then in  Properties List select ID , this will give you the Driver required and you can download it manually from web and install it.

When I replaced this one, I get finally this error and I'm stuck:

What I did so far:

Chkdsk /R /F
Rebuild BCD (All kind, bootsect /nt60 ..., bootrec /fixboot & fixmbr, I also writed all the boot with bcdedit)
Replace files like (ntoskrnl.exe, hal.dll, acpi.sys, msisadrv.sys, pci.sys, volmgr.sys, volsnap.sys and disk.sys)
Antiv?rus check, malwarebytes and spyboot check.
SFC /scannow with and without OFFDIR.

I currently have a eMachines T6216 Desktop computer. With an AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3200+. The system was pre-configured as an ACPI PC. I was having problems with the OEM Windows. So installed a copy of Windows XP Pro that I had. But Ive since had problems with certain applications. And its because now the PC is a "Standard PC". Ive tried different methods such as updating the driver to fix this problem, but that doesnt work.

How can I properly install Windows XP Pro as an "ACPI PC">?

Hi mascot and welcome to the forum!

We'd be much more helpful in diagnosing your issue if you could take the time and fill in your system specs on your profile. As there, we could see your motherboard and other peripherals that might contribute to what you're encountering.

Off the bat, have you tried going to your motherboard's manufacturer's website to obtain the latest driver?
You could also try running the program in compatibility mode.
Did you check the error logs and error number encountered that might point you to the exact problem why it's failing the install.
Did you run the application as administrator?

Hey all,

My BIOS came with ACPI 2.0 disabled. How critical is ACPI 2.0 for system stablity/crashes, etc? I've read (today, of course, lol) it is almost required.

And is it true that you have to install Vista with ACPI 2.0 already enabled on your BIOS for it to work correctly? Meaning I would have to re-install Vista?

I'm currently having crashes and instability problems, perhaps once or twice a week, while playing games. This is down from around 5 times a day before I RMAed my power supply and manually turned up my GPU fan to 100%.

All timings/voltages are set to manual. All updates/drivers are current.

Try physically resetting the CMOS using the onboard jumpers -- and make sure the battery itself is good.

The error can also occur due to faulty ram.

I'm currently trying to upgrade from windows xp to windows 7. Every time i try the install it tells me "This computer is not compliant with the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) standard. Windows must be installed onto a computer that supports ACPI. Contact your computer manufacturer for a BIOS update or install Windows on an ACPI-compliant computer."

I checked and the BIOS is updated and i have the ACPI option enabled.

My mother board is an MSI K9A Platinum and IS (supposedly) ACPI compliant.

Other notes: I built this computer about three years ago with some friends and have at one point had the Windows 7 Release Candidate installed so i know it works.

I have a spare computer running Windows Vista Ultimate that has started having some issues.
It crashed previously with a bluescreen saying the system32/win_boot didn't exist (or something along those lines, it was a few days ago) and I managed to get it to run by reinstalling VIsta and then proceded to install Avira Free 2013 and ran a full scan, and it came out clean.
It worked fine for a few days and then suddenly, upon booting past the HP screen that gives me the option to go into setup and the boot menu, it will crash with a BSOD (Which only stays up for like half a second) and then it just restarts right away by itself.
I managed to make out "Acpi.sys error" or something along those lines.
Any help would be wonderful.
Thank you!

Suddenly I am unable to boot up my pc and have been getting the following blue screen message:
"The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant."

When trying to boot I get about 3 seconds to chhose Windows Setup or Windows 7. Problem is it won't recognise my keystrokes at this page so I can't use the direction arrows to get off Windows Update and onto Windows 7. Nor can I press f8.

I had been recently unable to update Windows and tried to repair my Windows with my Windows 7 Update disc. That wouldn't complete. Now I can't even turn it on.
Any ideas?

Have you installed any new hardware or software lately? Please make a list.

That error message probably indicated that your BIOS hardware isn't compatible with ACPI (ACPI is something that controls the electricity given to the components inside your computer (Gave me a headache reading about it, so i might not be spot-on))

Also, insclude your computer's specs please

Read about ACPI:

EDIT: Here's how to disable the ACPI, maybe that'll fix your problem:
You can disable acpi under power management in the bios. It's usually on the top line, and you just hit enter and change from enable to disable. When you do, windows will reconfigure your operating system, and you may have to reload some drivers.

Good Luck!

I recently had performed a Windows Update on my HP laptop. I shut it off before it was done (Pretty stupid of me), and now it will not boot. It keeps coming up with a message saying ACPI.sys is corrupted and I'll need to use recovery tools.
Can someone please help me fix this?

A:How do I fix 'ACPI.sys is missing or corrupted'?

Here's some repair/recovery/restore options (in this order):
1 - Startup Repair.  Run it 3 times, rebooting in between tries.2 - System Restore to a point before this started happening.3 - DISM/SFC repair (DISM doesn't work with W7, although SFC does)
DISM /Online should only be used when running from within Windows. Run this command instead:Dism /Image:C:\ /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
Did you also try doing SFC scan while booting off of Recovery Environment or Install Disk? In those cases, the commands are slightly different:sfc.exe /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows
4 - RESET using the "Keep My Files" option (W8 calls this a REFRESH; W7 and earlier doesn't have this function)5 - Repair install of the OS (Thanks to FreeBooter!):

I am running windows XP with all the latest everything Earlier today I got hit by a malware attack from the AP manager ransomware I use zonealarm pro but at the time it was turned off as it conflicts with problems BSOD ACPI.sys a game I was ACPI.sys BSOD problems playing When i saw apmanager launch itself i immediately started zonealarm This allowed me to block a huge amount of crap that was trying to install itself or access the internet I then ran a scan with zonealarm which identified a lot of infections I deleted and quarantined them and then re-booted When I finished rebooting i was hit by the ap manager ransomware which was still functional It completely locked out my system I rebooted in safemode followed some tutorials and ran some anti spyware malware programs which succesfully removed ap manager I then left safemode and returned to normal mode I was running in normal mode for about three minutes when I blue screen of deathed I rebooted but this time I BSOD'd while windows was loading I am now always BSODing when i try to start normally I am able to run in safemode just fine I am getting two separate BSOD errors depending on if i start normally or start using the last known config When i start normally I get a ACPI sys page fault in nonpaged area stop x When i do last good config i get a ACPI sys stop x I have read up on both these errors and found very little in the way of solutions I know both can be caused by either software or hardware problems Considering that my system has had nothing new added and I just went through a large malware attack i'm going to assume it's software related So how do I go about fixing these errors I have googled both extensively but the other people having them seem to be people installing windows for the first time on a new computer or end up having it be due to hardware issues I haven't been able to find any instances of it being software related I do not currently have access to my windows install CD I cannot system restore as the malware deleted all my restore points

Hi, and welcome to TSF.

I think it very likely that you still have remnants of the malware on your system. I am waiting for advice from a colleague and shall get back to you shortly.

Hey guys I'm just here to make sure I'm doing everything right I read up on some other people having ACPI issues with their computers and I ended up with Resolving ACPI Issues some the on At first it was just crashes but it got to the point to where I had nothing but ACPI compliance BSODs I read on here that some guy reinstalled from XP to Win x and had no problems so I'm doing that now in hopes of the same Resolving ACPI Issues resolve I've also read where a guy had issues with his M-Audio drivers and that it was causing all the issues Going back to my thoughts the last drivers I installed were drivers directly from MSI for my Big Bang x motherboard It also installed the Utilities they have with it which may need Resolving ACPI Issues to be considered Is there anything else I should consider doing while I install I already updated the BIOS so that's out of the way I checked my memory already so they are good to go Anything I missed

A:Resolving ACPI Issues

Great. While installing XP, I got a Memory_Management Bsod. I'm guessing I need to run memcheck?

I've been trying to solve this fan issue for quite a couple of days now and I came to the conclusion that if there's anyone who will probably have a solution it's Brink.

The issue specifically is my CPU Fan is always on when idle or gaming(Exact fan noise level), resulting in consistent noise. I'm certain this is an ACPI problem that is causing this. Please help.

My PC Specs (Dell XPS 720):

2 Gigs of ram
Windows Vista 32bit

A:ACPI Causing My CPU Fan To Always Run(Even at idle)

It's a bios issue, lookup the vendor and download the latest bios for your motherboard. Google "flash bios" for a how-to

When I turned my computer on today, it has told me that it found new hardware and wants to install drivers. I haven't added anything for a long time, since I put 3rd hard drive. Because it couldn't find the drivers it came up with ACPI IRQ holder error but I don't know what it is referring too.
I googled it but there are so many, that is very hard to pick which one it is. In my device manager I don't have anything that doesn't have a driver or not identified.
Can you please shed some light on the matter


A:ACPI IRQ holder error?

AMLI: ACPI BIOS is attempting to create an illegal memory OpRegion, starting at address 0xffffff00, with a length of 0x100. This region lies in the Operating system's protected memory address range (0x100000000 - 0x130000000). This could lead to system instability.
