THIS IS EDITTED (UPDATED INFORMATION) DISREGARD ALL THE REPLIES! NOTHING WORKED! I STILL NEED MAJOR HELP! THANKS!!!
So I am using a new mobo (a8n32-sli deluxe) a new gpu (x1900xtx) and a 4400+ x2 proc and 512x2 2700 corsair RAM and it seems that after formating my hard drive (to clear my version of xp and all my old stuff) and beginning to reinstall windows, I get this error when booting:
The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor or visit http://www.hardware-update.com
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 the ACPI and allow you to continue your installation.
Thats just the beginning, I've tried about everything (and this other guy i've been talking too) can think of to fix it. I've tried different RAM (OCZ 3200), only 1 of my ram, all different combos and voltages. Both RAM types get TONS (like 600+) errors using memtest32+ (i've tried 1 at a time of the corsair too) So I think its something on the mobo maybe causing the RAM to **** up. I have the lastest BIOS (and have tried to downgrade) but I'm not able to find a place to change the timings on the RAM (the only thing I really havn't tried doing) Theres a section that says them, but its all greyed out. I've also tried messing with the parallel ports (they were already on) because I saw something on google about that. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
edit: I googled around alittle more and found http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=314830
and the error I'm having is
(0x00000002, Parameter2, Parameter3, Parameter4):
This error is defined as ACPI root PCI resource failure. To discover what current resources are being used by PCI devices, ACPI must be able to query the CRS descriptor in the ACPI namespace. This error occurs if the BIOS lacks a pointer to the list, or if the list is empty, or if the list contains errors or conflicts.
