Check the computer manufacturer's website for a flash BIOS update. ACPI is an onboard power management program that works with the OS to turn devices on the motherboard on and off as needed in order to conserve power. Modern OSs require this function to operate correctly. The update will come with instructions for installing it, and you must follow them exactly, else your computer may become unusable.

If no update is available, you'll have to revert to the original OS to use it, as there is no way around this that I've heard about. ACPI has been standard on PCs for over 10 years, and it's unlikely that any modern OS will work on a PC without it.

Dell 8300 not loading xp home with the blue screen of death


To resolve this behavior, contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a BIOS that is fully ACPI compliant.

To work around this behavior, manually install the Standard PC hardware abstraction layer (HAL):
  1. Restart the computer to restart Setup.
  2. 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.

ACPI is not a compliant


Enter you bios & disable ACPI. Restart the system. Than update your windows. There should be an update for ACPI through Microsoft update service. Once installed restart your system & enter into your bios. Now enable ACPI. Save & exit the bios.
If this does not help you can try the work around found on Microsoft's web site. See the link provided;

ACPI BIOS not fully compliant


w8000 a very old PC not supported by HP.
windows 2000 support ended like 15 years ago.. W2k. is gone. w2k only runs on very old pcs with very old ACPI
(power controls is that)

this PC is only supported with XP
never 2000.
HP tells you that if you looked.
park the 2000 disk or use it as frezzbee. IMO

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/compaq-evo-workstation-w8000/322279


id get w7 disk and use that, it might work.
but will cost you a license from MS,
about 5 times the value of w8000

why not just go here, and get used $20 w7 pc
save a bundle of case and grief messing with any legacy junk....avoid legacy junk and win.

Dell Inspiron 1100 Bios and ACPI


Please contact your system vendor 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 ACPI and allow you to continue your installation."

RESOLUTION
Manually install the Standard PC hardware abstraction layer (HAL):
1. Reboot the computer to restart Setup.
2. When Setup starts again, press F7 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. You should also contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a BIOS that is fully ACPI compliant

I have ACPI problem. said when i was trying to install os on my system and it said "the bios in this system is not fully ACPI compliant" pls what can i do


For that particular software you are using,,the ACPI thinks your Bios needs updating.
You can re flash the Bios to a newer version if one is available, and if one isn't available,,then i would suggest turning off the ACPI functions in your system Bios.
ACPI controls the power saving features of your machine via the software, also the power saving features on any legacy devices attached to your system.

Acpi compliant


BIOS has no upgrade for VISTA to be installed. Contact the manufacture to write on update BIOS for that computer or motherboard as the case may be.
