I got some new equipment for Christmas (an ATI Video Card and a flash drive) and after installing the video card and using the new flash drive I had a problem with my computer refusing to boot. I got an error about an ACPI Non-Compliant BIOS. I'm running Win98SE upgraded to XP Home and until this problem that has run nicely. I researched the ACPI error and found instructions to disable ACPI in the text setup but was unable to do so. I was finally able to format my drive (yes, I hated to; but I did) load Win98 and through some trouble upgraded that to XP. I still don't understand why that happened, and in the process I lost the ability to go to StandBy mode and also now when I shutdown my computer I get the screen that says it is now safe to turn your computer off (that wasn't the case before this problem). My BIOS Version is EA81510A.15A.0004.P02 and I believe that is right. Any information you have on these problems is greatly appreciated.

For sometime (before my recent reformat) I've been having problems with web pages not loading. Firefox 2 and 1 for that matter give me a Problem loading page error and so does IE 6 and 7. It doesn't happen all the time but it happens a lot and is driving me crazy. I have a LAN that enables wireless for a laptop my daughter uses and the problem computer is hard wired into my Netgear router. I think the settings on my router are okay; but what do I know? When i went to msconfig startup I found a few items that have no startup item or command and I read somewhere that these may be a problem. Something that I just noticed tonight that bothers me is that since I loaded AVG 7.5 I now have 2 folders for Grisoft and Grisoft(2). That wasn't the case with 7.1. Is that the way it is structured with the new version?

I don't know what else to do but attach my HJT log so here you go:

7 days without a reply. Wow that is something I've never experienced here before. I found the reason I was getting the message "it is now safe to turn off your computer". Had to go to Power Options and enable Advanced Power Management.

Anybody willing to touch this one?
