Preferred Solution: Bios update without windows B50 - acpi bios error

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello: My computer is a Pavilion a850y Pentium 4HT 3.8 MHz, just installed a new sata hard drive and tried to install Windows XP Home Edition. During the start of the install, right after the drivers loaded I got the following Message: A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen restart your computer. If the screen appears again, follow these steps..The Bios in this system is not fully ACPI compliant.

I upgraded my HP M7360N with a Pentium D 2.8 with 2gb of ram to Windows 8 and then to 8.1. It hasn't been too bad except for the video card driver, but wanted to put 2gb more of ram in to help it out as it is a GeForce 6200 turbocache. I ordered 2 1GB pc4200 sticks which are the same as what I have in it. At first it wouldn't boot and had the ram replaced. It still didn't work and was about to send back for a refund but then put the 2 sticks in the original ram slots and it booted. Heartened I put the original ram in the 2 slots that were originally empty and then got an ACPI_BIOS_ERROR and it said it was gathering info but it never left 0%. I am updating bios right now but the fixes listed on the update didn't say anything that I saw would be related. What can I do to try and get the ram to work. Thanks in advance.

Over the weekend, I found my computer displaying a blue screen with an error message about ACPI BIOS not being fully-compliant with the ACPI specification. This occurred following a warm reboot after playing a game (RCT3). Now, I have been (and still am) having some performance issues with said game but the only thing that has been done to my system lately is an unistall and reinstall of the game, plus its two expansion packs and update patches. I had been having a problem with the game suddenly exiting, which prompted said unistall/reinstall. Since then I have been having different issues with the game freezing and slow play, but they unfortunately are typical problems many people seem to be having with the game. I have reviewed some 'tweaking' tips from the game forums, but did not change anything. This is the first I have ever seen this ACPI BIOS error. I rebooted the computer again, and it loaded properly, but I am concerned about what caused this and what I need to do about it. Some guidance would be appreciated. Thanks.

I purchased a new ASUS laptop with Win8. I wanted to replace it with Win7. I wiped, formatted and partitioned the HD. I changed the BIOS so it boots from the DVD. I put my 7 disc in and started. A message says it is loading files. In a minute or so I get the Blue Death Screen with the message: Problem detected, shut down to prevent possible damage. The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact vendor for updated version.
ASUS has been off line for several days so no help there. Anywhere else I can get a updated BIOS? If that is the problem. Is there a thread somewhere this was solved?
One other thing, got the same results when I tried to install XP. Thanks

A:BIOS NOT ACPI COMPLIANT error 0x000000A5

You need to check your BIOS settings. If you need to update your BIOS, then you can likely download what you need from the ASUS website. What you described is typical of incorrect BIOS settings. If the BIOS settings were correct, I think you'd be able to do the clean install regardless of a BIOS update.

I think you should delete all the partitions and let the Win 7 install do the partitioning and formatting. The Win 7 install will give you the opportunity to select what size partitions you desire.

What are your BIOS options?

Memory is not the problem because we have change slots remove RAMs making it single then still XP hangs. It is not the CDWriter because the hanging happened before we bought the CDWriter. I don't know with the video card but i think the error is on the BIOS Setup configuration. Can you help me find it out.

Before I get into the details of the issue I want to point out that this computer was running Windows 7 fine without any bsod or other errors for about 6 months. 6 months ago I performed a wipe/ restore of my system drive to clean out the crud that windows/programs build up over time. windows 7 had been running fine since I first installed in back in 2010 to replace xp. So yeah it was time to do a clean up. now on to the issue at hand.

I followed the guide how to enable sata from within win 7 without reinstalling the os. I'd never really tried sata to be honest, I'd just left it set at "Native IDE" in my bios when I did the upgrade from xp to 7. So I followed the guide and everything worked as promised. But my win experience rating didn't improve and I noticed no gains from doing it. The only thing that happened was my boot time increased a bit. So I decided to go back to "native IDE". I went into reg edit and changed the value back to what it was before, then on reboot I went into the bios and changed back to native ide.

Once I did that I got hit with the BSOD " bios not fully acpi compliant. see vender for updated bios"

Now this bios is updated, I had to do it a few years ago in order to enable support for am3 cpus on my am2/am2+ board. more to the point as I pointed out everything had been running smooth up to this point. So i figured no big deal I'll just do a image restore and be back up and running in no time. Man how wrong I was.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Hello to the BleepingComputer community,First of all I'm sorry I haven't finished some of the steps from the Preparation Guide. It's because these steps require a reboot (e.g. Step 6: Disable your CD Emulation Software - DeFogger will ask me to reboot the machine), and I have a bad feeling about the question if it is safe to reboot in my situation: I'm not sure if I have a type of malware which is ready to infect the BIOS - if it is so, then it could infect it much easier during the reboot process.- If there is a good way to find out what is the problem (and fix the BIOS threat part if it really is present) without rebooting / shutting down this PC, or at least without booting from this hard drive (which I feel is probably infected), then please tell me what should I do.- If you know a place / forum where I can get a specialized help for this (seemingly BIOS-malware related) situation, please tell me where I could go.- If there is no way to move forward, I'll go ahead and risk the reboot, and follow the other steps (steps 6 to 10) in the Preparation Guide, no problem.I kindly ask you to please read below the details of the problem as it occured to me, and the things I have tried so far.The PC is AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core BE-2350 2.1GHz, Motherboard Biostar TA690G AM2 (with AWARD BIOS), 4GB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, and an ASUS EAH4870 card added a few years ago.It's with WinXP SP3, AVG Free 2012, (standard) Windows Firewall, and it's behind a router.I ...

I'm trying to install Windows 7 on a Compaq Presario 2100 laptop with 1GB of RAM and known good HDD. I ran memtest 86 for 12 hours with no errors. The BIOS sucks and has no options for ACPI, power management, or even serial/parallel port addressing, only boot order, system info, and password. The only device option in the BIOS besides video memory (tried every setting there) is legacy usb support (tried that too). I've been googling for 2 hours about this and found the whole F5 and F7 thing for XP, but I'm not sure if there's a similar option in 7 to only use Standard HAL. There's no Press F6 prompt in 7 install to press F7 at.

Hello everybody,

Since 2 days i'm running into troubles with the installation of Windows 7 on an Asus notebook X751MA with pre-installed Windows 8.1.

The first manipulations i've done in BIOS are:
Security tab -> Secure boot on Disable
Boot tab -> Launch CSM on Enable.
Set first boot option on DVD-ROM.
The computer boots on the Windows 7 DVD, I see the progress bar with the sentence "Windows is loading the files...". When the progress bar is finished, the "Starting Windows" with the animated logo appears and 5 seconds later, a Blue Screen is displayed with the following information:

The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant.
Please contact your system vendor for an update BIOS. STOP 0x000000A5

What I've tried since:

Set Power off Energy Saving on Disabled (since ACPI error is Power related...)
Set Wake on lid Open on Disabled
Set SATA configuration on IDE (but then I can't boot on the DVD)
The same error occurs when I try to install Windows XP

I bought a used laptop from someone who had xp installed in Dell N4050. Now when I try to install windows 7 after formatting, I get the error

"The bios in this system is not fully acpi complaint"

I checked in dell website latest bios for the laptp, it is a07 which is already a07 in the laptop. So I wonder why it is getting error and how to sort it out. Thank you.

A:[SOLVED] bios in this system is not acpi complaint when i install fresh windows 7

Are you using the restore partition or a Win7 disk?

A:got the windows 10 free upgrade and used the dell diagnostics tool to upgrade driver and bios everything worked fine until the update of the bios!!!!

I called dell they told me in not so many words my motherboard was Fried and they would not replace it.

Dell just saying it's a "possibility" the motherboard might need to be replace. No one can tell you that motherboard is definite "Fried" without first looking at the system.
What is the system model number and version of windows before upgrading to windows 10? Example: Dell Inspiron 3543, windows 10

Specs: HP Compaq 5100 SFF Running XP PRO SP3 With A 2.8 GHz P4 and 3 GBs of RAM.
Let me tell you what happened. I was having problems with a very, very slow CD/DVD combo drive and I looked around and around and could find only one thing that seemed like it would help and it made perfect sense. You see, I have a good computer, but it is a Small Form--not allowing me to add much to it. Anything that I have added has to be added as a slave device. Anyway, my configuration was this: My boot drive is a 80 GB SATA drive. Then, I have only one IDE Controller on the Motherboard, which has the CD/DVD drive as master and an old 40GB Hard Drive as slave. My optical drive was turtle or snail slow when viewing pictures, copying/pasting files to the HD, and anything that is data oriented. So, what I did was disconnect the slave HD drive to see if that would make it run like an optical drive was supposed to run, a little slow, but bearable. When I did this, and reconnected and rebooted, it would not boot to anything--safe mode, windows, last known configuration, hp recovery, 2 boot discs, nothing! At the opening screen, I get the opening HP screen, but it has stripes. I go into BIOS and the menus are striped. If I try to boot to Windows/Safe Mode, I get either a black screen where nothing happens, an endless pause, or a Blue Screen telling me that I have a BIOS error and they have stopped at this point to avoid any further damage. There's also a message telling me to press F7 to disable A... Read more

My assumption is one of the memory sticks got loosed from it's slot when you played with the HDD. Please remove the memory modules and use a pencil rubber to clean it's gold plated contacts.  After making sure the contacts are clean and shining, inset them to the slots. If there is more than one module, connect one at a time. Now try to boot the system.

My computer (an HP 6305 Pro) has given me two BSOD's reading "Your PC has encountered a problem and needs to restart", followed by a forced restart. It also froze up once, which I believe may be related to the same error. The DMP files after both of the two crashes declared to the problem to be error 0x00000124, specified hal.dll, and also always implicated Opera browser. For more information, you can read this thread that I've posted about it at TenForums: "Your PC encountered a problem and needs to restart." - Round 2. - TenForums I've run a battery of tests on my hardware (MemTest86, Prime95, Furmark, Western Digital Data Lifeguard, CHKDSK, Scannow, etc), all without incident or error. I find it hard to believe at this point that the problem is purely hardware-related. I have received suggestions that I update my BIOS (as an outdated BIOS apparently might be the source of the problem), but I'm afraid to do this, as I'm afraid that it runs the risk of messing up my system to the point of making my computer unbootable. That said, now that this error has struck again, I believe that it is in my best interests to gather more information about updating my BIOS, and perhaps go through with an update if the information that I receive indicates that it would be most prudent to do so, and I also receive satisfactory information on how to update my BIOS safely. As far as I can tell, this is the correct installer to use to update my BIOS (please correct me if...

Hello 1. Don't believe BIOS is problem. 2. You can update BIOS but don't believe this action will solve problem. 3. There are two different 6305 Pro models. Here is the detail on BIOS update for one of them. It is a security update. So I don't think this update will fix problem. Also looked at other PC option using HP 6305 Pro and found BIOS update for security only. If Opera is indicated when BSOD occurs I suggest you remove browser from PC and use a different browser. See what happens. Don't think a BIOS update will fix your problem. It seems to be software related. 4. Some HP PC's have BIOS recovery option, your PC may not. Grzy

Ok I just assembled this computer and I already had to replace the motherboard because of a bad 3.3V regulator on the board.

CPU: Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 965 3.73Ghz
Mobo: ASUS P5WDG2-WS
RAM: 4x1GB OCZ PC2-6400
Video Card: ATI X1600XT

I'm able to get BIOS up and change and save settings. I'm also able to POST. Everything was going great. I saved all my BIOS settings and then inserted my Windows XP Professional x64 disk in my CD-Rom. The computer restarted and booted from my CD. Windows setup started and started loading at the bottom. Then after it finished loading (? I assume) the screen displayed this error:

----------------BEGINNING OF ERROR MESSAGE----------
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your Computer.

acpi.sys

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

A:"ACPI.sys" error and Continous BIOS Beeps

Reboot the computer with the XP cd in the drive and press F5 instead of F6.
This will take you to a separate menu of Hardware Abstraction Layer's where you can choose an appropriate HAL that supports ACPI. The choices will be:



ACPI Multiprocessor PC


ACPI Uniprocessor PC


Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC


Compaq SystemPro Multiprocessor or 100% Compatible PC


MPS Uniprocessor PC
MPS Multiprocessor PC


Standard PC


Standard PC with C-Step i486


Other

In the majority of installations the 'Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC' HAL is the one you will want to use. A few cautions are also in order:

*

Obtain and install the latest BIOS for your motherboard before you begin the XP installation.
*

Equally as important as using the proper HAL on ACPI capable systems, is NOT using it on systems that are not ACPI compatible. The install may complete but the system will almost surely fail to start when it reboots.
*

There are situations where it is definitely not desirable to use an ACPI HAL even if it is supported by the BIOS. This predominately applies to servers, but to ensure that an ACPI HAL will not be used or automatically detected and used, press F7 instead of F5 as discussed previously.

Considering the number of problems that users have with systems not shutting down completely I wonder why this fea... Read more
