    Intel DG31PR - BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI Compliant

    Hi everyone! I learned about this forum looking for a solution to my problem in Google.

    I recently tried to install Windows 7 and right after the DVD loads the neccesary files, a blue screen appears saying that "BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI Compliant".

    I've reanding some threads in this forum about people who had the same problem but I couldnt solve mine with the solutions provided to them.


    My motherboar is an Intel DG31PR. To being with, I tried disabling APM in BIOS (as recommended to people with a different mobo) but that option doesn't exist in my BIOS. Also, I tried disabling Legacy USB support but that didn't work. Finally, I tried restoring the optimal default BIOS config but it didn't work either.

    Despite all this I could make Win7 work but not in the way I would like. My specs are:

    Intel DG31PR
    Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 2,2Ghz
    2 x2GB Kingston DDR2 800Mhz
    XFX Geforce 8600GT

    What I did was to remove one of the memory sticks and by doing that I could install and use Win 7 perfectly. The problem is that when I "re-plug" the second stick that lovely blue screen would appear again just before the computer starts loading the system. I'm sure both RAM memory sticks work perfectly as I tested them several times. Also I'm sure both slots work fine.

    Basically my problem is that I can only use Windows 7 as long as I use only one RAM memory slot (the mobo just have 2 slots).

    So is there anything I can do to be able to use both slots? Thanks in advance!

    Wow 60 views and no replies.. how disappointing! :P
    Just kidding!

    Let me tell you some new developments:

    As I said, I have 2 RAM sticks of 2 GB each. On another PC I have two other sticks but of 1 GB each. All of them are DDR2 800 Mhz.

    Also as I said, I am using just one stick of 2GB because I thought I could only use one slot. However, I decided to try the two 1 GB sticks (occupying both slots on the mobo) and it worked! Then I tried one 2 GB stick combined with one of 1 GB and it worked too! Unfortunately when I tried again to use the two 2 GB sticks the blue window pop-up again.

    It seems then that the problem is I cant use 4 GB although my mobo is supposed to support them. May it be related to a voltage issue?

    Welcome to the forums

    How exactly did you test the memory?

    If you haven't done so yet, I'd try memtest

    I just tested them one by one and the computer worked fine. I supposed that if the sticks were damaged the PC wont start or wont work properly.

    Anyways have just used Memtest and both are fine.
