Help.....ACPI Bios Not fully compliant??
ok..heres the story..
I just opened this computer I got from tigerdirect.com 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 $150..so 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 so..how would I go about fixing this..
