I keep getting the "Can't open ACPI Kernel Mode Drive" when I turn on my computer. After I click "OK" everything seemed to work fine until a few days ago. Now my screen goes black periodically for no apparent reason. I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the error message at start up and what to do to fix it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello ..ACPI is the power management facility for your Windows Operating system. We need to know which your is,so I can move this.
You may have to run a system recovery on your computer to fix this,but I would like the experts on your OS to confirm.
I recommend you back up all important data now.
