Preferred Solution: Blue screen appears say BIOS not fully ACPI compliant what should i do?

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.)

I am not a novice with computers. I've been programming and repairing PCs since the 1980s, but this one has got me stumped. It's the craziest thing I've ever seen.

The computer is a pretty old HP Pavilion 8660C. It's got a 533 MHz Pentium 3. Yes, I know this this is pre-historic. I was just doing this for kicks, to see how well it could handle Windows 7.

A few days ago, I put a 160 GB hard drive in it, wiped it and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Ultimate. It worked absolutely perfectly for 2 days. Then last night, I found an extra 256 MB PC-133 SDRAM stick in a box of old parts I have. I used it to bump up the RAM in the Pavilion from 384 MB to 512 MB.

I turned the machine back on, at first it seems all is fine. It POSTed, registered all 512 MB of RAM... and in the middle of booting back into Windows, CRASH! It gives me a blue screen of death. STOP 0x000000A5.

"The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your vender for an updated BIOS."


As far as I know, there is nothing about changing RAM size that could possibly break the ACPI compatibility of a BIOS. Even so, I shut it down again, and put the previous stick of RAM back on the motherboard. At this point it's the exact same configuration as before, when Windows 7 was running fine on it for 2 days.

Turned it back on, and it STILL crashes with that stop error! At this point I think, well the BIOS is from 1999. Maybe there's some intermittent ACPI bug in it. So, I downloaded the ... Read more

Guys!

I have a Dell laptop with version A8 Bios and I was trying to Install a second os windows server'03 in it through bootable DVD.but on booting an blue screen with error flashed "Your Bios not Fully acpi compliant".Update your bios by contacting the system vendor.I though bios like firmware doesnot need any updates at all.More over Some of my friends said It is very risky to update the Bios.It may lead to severe problems If any flaw in Updation happens. What to do now? I really want to install the second os. In windows the installation demands to get start only from bootup..

Thanks in advance!
 

A:BIOS not Fully acpi compliant

Server is not really designed to run a laptop.

Also, you neglected to tell us what laptop you have, the exact model and service tag would be useful.

BIOS updates are release all the time for add features, fix bugs, add new support for hardware, or change the system behavior. There is always some risk in updating the BIOS because if it goes wrong you can end up with a dead brick.

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..
Thanks
 

A:Help.....ACPI Bios Not fully compliant??

I would suggest contacting the manufacturer of either the motherboard or the computer about a BIOS update. They will provide you with proper instructions and the proper programing to flash the BIOS. One thing please follow the instructions very carefully this is a very dangerous procedure one mistake and your system will not bootup again.

These were the problem ones:

so if I do what they said and just get those drivers...will everything work ok?

Im pretty sure I need to change something in the bios..but dont have a clue on what needs to be done.

Those are your drivers missing.

Get the driver from here. www.driversguide.com

Thats why you cannot get online becuase your Ethernet card/ port does not have the drivers installed.
Is this onboard ethernet or a PCI?

Go into the BIOS and make sure ACPI is enabled. If that doesn't work, you may have to roll the BIOS back to the older version. Check with the motherboard manufacturer's website to ensure they have an updated BIOS that will work with ACPI. Because ACPI handles power management and Plug and Play devices, that's why your video cards no longer work.

Installing from DVD is less likely to solve the issue.I would suggest carefully reading the below tutorial and follow instructions as a first step.

Usually most of the Dell machines are downgadable if correct BIOS settings are applied.

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.

Hello everybody !
 
I kinda have a problem as the title states.My neighbour has a Lenovo G50 she bought and came with windows 8.1 x64 ( which she doesn't like at all and in my opinion win7 is far more superior ). The thing is I wanted to install her the Windows 7 Ultimate but everytime the " loading files " ends right after it boots from the dvd I get a bsod with the message " The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant Stop 0x000000A5 "I tried all kind of different settings through the bios, changed from UEFI boot to Legacy / disabled secure boot / fast boot / I set the ACHI to compatible / but the end result is almost the same ( two times with different settings my screen froze with a red line over the top after loading the files )
 
My question is what is the problem and is there a fix for it? (of course it is,but I don't know it )
 
 Thanks !

Please help! I turned on my computer and got the blue screen with this 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 this screen appears again, follow these steps:

The BIOS in your system is not fully ACPI complaint. Please contact your system vendor or visit http://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 ACPI and allow you to continue your installation.

***STOP: 0x000000A5 (0x00010007, 0x0000000F4, 0x0000000, 0x0000000).

I tried restarting my computer, even unplugging it. It is a Gateway 500X (purchased in 2001), using Windows XP. I think I found a file to fix it, but am not sure if it is the correct file. It is the first link on this link:
http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/mydl.asp?tab=MY&os=Windows%20XP

If it is, I am wondering if I could burn the file to a CD, and insert the disk into the computer that is getting the message. (I am obviously not very experienced with computers).

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Hi there,
so I'm fixing a laptop which suddenly started getting BSODs:






Quote:
The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant.
STOP: 0xA5 (0x1000, 0x0, 0x55AA55AA, 0xFFFF0091)


It was running Windows 7 before but suddenly it started getting the 0xA5 BSOD no matter what was attempted. So I got the PC and tried booting from linux USB stick to test HDD and RAM - No problems. I figured since it was able to run under Linux I should be able to simply reinstall Win7 but sadly I was mistaken. When I try to install Win7 it simply shows the "Windows is loading files..." screen after which it shows the "Windows starting" screen and then BSOD. I tried with Win7 32 & 64 bit + Win8 64bit..

I've done a ton of research by now and tried avoiding the ACPI check (spamming F7 at some point during install) but I cant get that to work. I tried wiping the HDD after reading a thread in here somewhere. I tried different hdds, pulling out some of the ram, nothing works. The most frustrating part is, I can install and run Linux (Mint) with no problems - so surely I must be able to get Windows installed somehow ? (It must run Windows)

Any ideas or help will be greatly appreciated!

I realize i am using an old mobo, but when I first installed a new copy of Windows 7 Home Premium and had no problems.

now... it will show the windows startup screen then stop and go to a blue screen that says that my system is "not ACPI compliant".

If i push the reset button on my case, the same thing happens. But if i turn off my power supply then turn it back on and boot, everything is fine.

Not sure if this has anything to do with it, but around the time it started doing this I was having trouble installing flash player and had to disable my norton 360 in order to get it to install.

Since it is fine after a power supply shut down, it makes me think that it is not doing something properly during shutdown.....

The system has been running for almost three years, no new software installed, though there is the occasional Acrobat or Java update or whatever. System Vendor (Lenovo) does not list an update for the BIOS.

I think you are facing a stop 0xA5, ACPI_BIOS_ERROR.

That is a problem relating to the BIOS, as a whole. But, depending on the parameters the generating cause may be different.

Can you post a camera snap of the blue screen so that we can see the parameters?

Also, boot into the BIOS, set it to default.

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?

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. Please contact your 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 next mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers.

A:" BIOS Not ACPI Compliant " Error message installing Windows...

I've seen that error before when installing XP after a memory upgrade on Pavilion desktop. At the time, I just removed the extra memory and installed XP, then reinstalled the memory.
Odd thing is, I later installed XP again with no problems leaving the extra memory in.

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
(0x0000000000000011, 0x0000000000000008, 0xFFFFFFFFFFD1B018,
0x0000000020120913)

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
The Windows 7 DVD is not corrupted (succefully tested on another computer)
I'm running the latest version of BIOS (206).
I've already "downgraded" (upgraded is more appropriate) from Windows 8 to Windows 7 on three others ASUS notebooks without a single problem (F751L, K72J, X75V).

During my researches in Asus support site, I've noticed only Windows 8.1 64 bits is available when you are as... Read more

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.

I guess this is a pretty simple question here.

I have an ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo, and I just bought 8gb of G.SKILL RAM that was guaranteed to work with the mother board. When I installed the memory the computer gave me a BSOD AFTER it posted. The BIOS shows 8gb of available memory. I also changed the timing and frequency to the ones written on the side of the module.

The BSOD always pops up right as the windows logo is coming together (windows 7) with "Stop 0x000000A5 the ACPI BIOS in the system is not fully compliant with the ACPI specification"

Now I have two 1 gb sticks of crucial ram that I was using, those still work fine, not a problem.

Do you guys think it's a problem with my memory or with the configuration of the mobo? How can I check if it's a memory problem?

Hi
Suddenly I am unable to boot up my pc and have been getting the following blue screen message:
"The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant."

When trying to boot I get about 3 seconds to chhose Windows Setup or Windows 7. Problem is it won't recognise my keystrokes at this page so I can't use the direction arrows to get off Windows Update and onto Windows 7. Nor can I press f8.

I had been recently unable to update Windows and tried to repair my Windows with my Windows 7 Update disc. That wouldn't complete. Now I can't even turn it on.
Any ideas?
thanks

A:ACPI compliant

Have you installed any new hardware or software lately? Please make a list.

That error message probably indicated that your BIOS hardware isn't compatible with ACPI (ACPI is something that controls the electricity given to the components inside your computer (Gave me a headache reading about it, so i might not be spot-on))

Also, insclude your computer's specs please

Read about ACPI: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advance...ower_Interface

EDIT: Here's how to disable the ACPI, maybe that'll fix your problem:
You can disable acpi under power management in the bios. It's usually on the top line, and you just hit enter and change from enable to disable. When you do, windows will reconfigure your operating system, and you may have to reload some drivers.

Good Luck!

Any help would be appreciated.

Make sure ACPI is enabled in BIOS and that you have the latest BIOS version update.

If that fails, try reseating RAM. Test your RAM using memtest86 CD for 5-6 passes.

You need a BIOS update, which you should be able to get from your PC or motherboard manufacture's website.

Hi guys, I am trying to install Windows 7 (retail disc) on my computer and it starts the process and then I get the message "computer is not ACPI compliant". I have flashed the latest Bios and downloaded a bunch of so called ACPI drivers to no avail. I tried loading my old Vista disc and got the same message. I ran the Windows 7 advisor before I started and it said my system was OK. I have a Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 Rev2, Athlon 64 X2 4000, 4gb DDR2 ram. The other odd thing is that when I try to boot the DVD from startup it bypasses the DVD and boots my XP system from the hard drive. I have the DVD set as first boot too. If I have to buy a new motherboard I am OK with that if someone can recommend an AM2+ board that will run Win 7. This is a hand me down computer from my kids that I want to use as a work station. I have a new Dell laptop so I don't want to upgrade the whole computer. Thanks

A:Computer not ACPI compliant

My first thought is to reset the bios.
It's a nforce motherboard it supports acpi, and shouldn't require any third party drivers or anything fancy.

While attempting to install Windows 7, the setup says:
This computer is not compliant with the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) standard. Windows must be installed onto a computer that supports ACPI. Contact your computer manufacturer for a BIOS update or install Windows on an ACPI-compliant computer.

When I go to MSI's site, I can't use their Bios updating software for some reasons. Any Help?

Hi,

I'm having trouble getting Win-7 to work on my HP Pavilion Dv-9700 (HP Pavilion dv9744eo specs - gdgt). I got it second hand, so it didn't have any OS installed on it. Tried XP, which worked good. I think it has Vista installed when you buy it. Win 7 on the other hand, does not work.

I can install successfully, it enter Windows and work perfectly, but after the first reboot Windows Error recovery prompts me too choose to either repair or start normally. Either way I get a blueescreen stating that "The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant".

I have updated my BIOS to the latest version, to no avail. There seems to be no trace of any ACPI settings in the BIOS whatsoever.

What should I do?

In ACPI, the DSW method is documented as requiring 3 paramters, but on this laptop, with the latest BIOS, the ACPI appears to expect only 1 parameter.  This causes problems with the linux kernel ACPI implementation. See http://www.uefi.org/sites/default/files/resources/ACPI_5_1release.pdf The full problem is logged here: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=191511 Could a HP engineer provide feedback?  What does windows do?  What is the expected behaviour? Is it possible to get a new BIOS to fix this? Another HP model is also listed in the bug report with the same behaviour. Thanks
