"The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant"
We've got a vanilla XP system on our admin network which has suddenly developed a nice BSOD along the lines of the title of this thread. Having never seen this before, and given it mentions the BIOS, I tried the obvious things such as loading defaults, removing CMOS battery for ~10mins (it loaded safe mode once after reinserting, but then after a reboot the same BSOD appears), and i'm at a loss as to what it could be.
We have reinstalled the BIOS with the latest version (whether that was an upgrade or the same version), yet this again hasn't helped. Could be looking at failed hardware? Could the BIOS be irrepairable?
Technical information, as usual, is of no help whatsoever!!
