Unhappy Blue screen after install Windows 7!

Hi everyone,

After installing windows 7 on my netbook (ASUS 1201HA) using Windows7 USB-DVD tool I got a blue screen with the message;

*** STOP: 0x000000A5 (0x0001B,0x50434146,0xFFD06200,0x00000000)

I tried 'Repair Your Computer' and several 'Safe Mode' options from the Advanced Boot Options screen, but the blue screen keeps turning up.

What can I do to fix this?

Thank you for any help offered!

Update your BIOS.

Hi MindoverMaster,

I tried to put Windows7 Ultimate on my netbook, before I did this I had Windows Home Premium on my netbook.

I used the Windows USB install method since it doesn't have a DVD player.

Can you please give some more advice on how to update the bios?


Thank you in advance!

Call me MoM. (everybody who knows me does)

The manufacturer of your motherboard should give you information on how to update BIOS.

Bug Check 0xA5: ACPI_BIOS_ERROR

Yes it is a BIOS error. I just gave a better page for information instead of one based on Windows XP.

Thanks, Mak. I didn't realize that until after I posted it. But I had to leave, so I just left it.
