  1. Been trying to solve problems with my graphics card for ages think i've finally found it :)

    in IRQs i have about 100
    "Microsoft ACPI compliant system"

    why do i need so many?

    is this a error?

    i was hoping someone would know something about these and why i have so many.

    just got me worried when the list appeared with loads of them on,

    system specs:-

    Power: CM Realpower 850W Modular PSU

    Controllers: Scythe Kama-Meter Multi Functional Controller
    Memory: Corsair 2GB DDR2 XMS2 Dominator PC2-8500C5 TwinX

    Storage: 2 x Samsung SpinPoint T 160GB SATA-II
    Sound: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic 7.1 Sound Card

    hope someone can help.

    That is not a normal thing imo.

    In Bios;

    Make sure your Advanced setting for Plug and Play OS is set to Yes.

    Then, under Power, set the ACPI APIC Support to Disabled for now.

    Boot and see what, if anything, changes.

    cheers mate :)

    right i've changed the plug and play os to yes but the other thing is enabled and its greyed out so i can't alter it :(

    did also check the IRQS again and nothing changed but then i suppose it wont without acpi being off will it?
