My notebook fairly new..3months old bought in england from AdventComputer.co.uk stopped operating recently. It came with XP pro and was working fine until recently. Intially it started behaving eratically meaning sometimes it would turn on and XP would run but many times it would halt at POST. Now it does not turn on at all. I can hear the hardrive and fan running.

Few times I got this message on a blue screen "BIOS not fully ACPI complaint....go to www.hardware-upgrade.com to obtain updated bios. ...... press Ff7 to turn off ACPI mode when installing storage device......."

Well since i knew its BIOS problem ..and when i got lucky tonite to get the system atleast display the bios information i wrote it down..

BIOS ver 2009DIX Release 11/21/2001
AMI 62-0213-009999-00101111-071592-SIS630 1AAOG008-W

Need help what to do??
Thank you
