    Hi, what do you mean by you can't install Windows XP?

    Why don't you start from the beginning by listing down your notebook's specifications.

    Then tell us what you did. Thanks!

    I guess he's talking 'bout ACPI, cuz it's a rather old notebook.

    Next time, before you rush into a BIOS-update, you

    -> check if your sys is ACPI-compatible and if it's
    just turned off in the settings
    -> press F6 while XP-setup is booting (when it asks you
    to press F5 for additional controllers) and select the
    system from the list.

    Not waking up = doin' nothing or just no screen?

    I agree with the others do you get bluescreen or blackscreen ?

    On not waking up I am confused as well can you post back to clarify :think:
