Default Help.....ACPI Bios Not fully compliant??

ok..heres the story..
I just opened this computer I got from and I was loading windows 2000 pro onto it...It loads half way and I get this message:
ACPI Bios not fully compliant with the ACPI specification.

So I did what I read and When Setup starts again, press F7 (not F6) when you see the "Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver" screen.
Windows automatically disables the installation of the ACPI HAL and installs the Standard PC HAL.

So win2k is installed but I cant seem to get onto the internet and update any of the drivers.
THe computer is a IBM netvista 8307 model. They had some deal on it awhile back for less than $ I couldnt pass it up.

Im kinda lost right now..not sure what the problem is.

I did add a new video card before I installed the OS...could that have been the problem?
If would I go about fixing this..

those drives could quiet possibly need the ACPI, try disabling it in the bios if possible then try getting those drivers again not sure if that would fix it just a thought
