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.

well your both wrong. windows xp had not recognized the new board. a reinstall of XP recognized the board, and then an upgade to win 7 went flawlessly.

checking the RAM has nothing to do whatsoever with ACPI compliance. please do not clog up these forums if you don't know what your talking about.

Q) I have a new MOBO & Win XP installed on the HD from a old PC, what should I do?

A) Do a Repair install of Win XP.

False info gets the wroug info back.

Wow! These are 2 respected very helpful people here, look at their track record. Replying like that will not get you much help.

The ACPI error can be false-positively generated by memory fails.

We recommend testing, reseating or restricting to 2gb RAM on nearly every install failure because when we don't, it often turns out to be memory-related after days of struggle.
