In the above a message says that in souce, ACPI error and when this happens my PC freezes.
Am I right that the bios ether needs flashing or upgrade the chip? I have found a company that will send me a updated chip for £39 would this be the safest way out cos I here so many storys about flashing.
My bios id is 12/15/200-8363-686A-6A6LMA19C on a Abit KT7-RAID Mobo Any help. Thanks
Check your system BIOS to see if APM is properly enabled and configured:
Enter your computer's BIOS setup (press DEL or ESC or something like that just after turning on your system, and your computer is counting through your memory).
Turn the main APM option to Enable or On. Important: Set all the lesser APM-related options (such as hard disk timouts and the monitoring of ports) to disable or off. This ensures that Windows is in control of all the APM options, and your BIOS settings don't interfere or conflict with your Windows APM preferences.
Then, set your power-saving preferences in Windows:
Double-click the Power Management icon in Control Panel. If it isn't there, your computer isn't properly set up - see above. Choose the options that best suit your needs, and click Ok when you're done.
If this doesnt work then try flashing the BIOS (if you need help with this post back)
