Update for ACPI Uniprocesser driver?

By kdf2000 ·
Granted, this question is only about gaming, but any help would be appreciated. One of the known bugs in Indiana Jones lego is that the characters can appear with no hands and faces. According to the forums on LucasArts, the fix is updating your drivers. I have a ACPI Uniprocessor driver from 7/1/01, version 5.1.2600. I went to Microsoft to update drivers, and they say everything is already updated. I updated to DirectX 10, exceed the recommended criteria for running the game, and don't know what to do next. I looked for an ACPI website, thinking I can get the update from the mfr., but can't find anything. Any suggestions?

What did their support team say when you called about the product for a fix?

Your Hardware Maker may have a Update here

by OH Smeg In reply to Update for ACPI Uniproces ...

So if it is an Off the Shelf system visit their Web Site and download any Newer Chip Set Drivers that they have available.

Or if it is a White Box visit your M'Board Makers Web Site and download the Chip Set Drivers for your Hardware and OS Type.

I however would be asking Lucas Arts for a solution here as this is really their problem.

As Col mentioned, if there is an update for the ACPI Uniprocessor driver, it would normally be part of the chip-set drivers for the motherboard.

I just checked my fully up to date AMD 64 system and found the same driver revision and date. I had not expected this driver to have been supplied by Microsoft.

Thinking about this, the ACPI Uniprocessor is more of a software / OS function rather than an actual piece of hardware. So it does make sense that it is supplied by Microsoft.

Just using the automated checks on the Microsoft web site does not assure that you do have the latest ACPI driver. Microsoft and most other companies do have updates and patches that are only available when a specific problem is reported.

I would go back to the forum and find out the specific version of the ACPI Uniprocessor driver that the people who have updated are running. It may be that all they are doing is reinstalling the same version driver and that somehow fixes a configuration or file error.

Still, I agree with Col's final advice. Bug LucasArts until they fix their game so it works correctly.

Thanks for the info

by kdf2000 In reply to Interesting

LucasArts support sucks. I haven't contacted them on this issue directly because others have, and the answer is that no patch is available and to make sure your drivers are updated. I will give it a shot. I can't remember the dates of those other posts. Maybe they do have a fix now. Thanks to you all for the help!
