Microsoft BSOD

By SteveFacer ·
Hey, I have an old IBM NetVista that has been being used for the last 5 years, now this morning I get these messages talking about ACPI BIOS is not compliant. Is there a quick fix? I do not have a copy of Windows 2000 to use to run the F6 option.

Stop Codes are
0x000000a5, 0x00000001, and 0x818b0a08 (this last one is not coming up with anything on my searches)

Check CMOS battery and settings

by TheChas In reply to Microsoft BSOD

If you are lucky, all that has happened is that the CMOS battery has gone dead and the CMOS settings have been lost.

If your computer used to shut all the way down by itself, make sure to enable ACPI mode in BIOS settings.

If you always had to manually shut down the computer, set ACPI to no or off.

This can also be caused by a virus or a failing disk drive.

For the virus or disk drive, you will likely need a Windows CD.
