i tried to reinstall the windows xp operationg system (windows xp) and i booted from the disk drive. everything was going just fine until a message pops up that reads-
"laptop problem-a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down. a bios in the system is not fully ACPI compliant. you can turn off ACPI mode during test 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 silentlly disable ACPI and allow you to continue."
my question is how would i do any of this and how do i get the win xp pro os on the laptop.
i talked to someone and they said the problems i was having with the laptop were all related to the os and nothing was hardware related. so i figure if i can just get this os back on, my problems should go away.
any help will be appreciated and thank you so very much for your time and happy new year.
