    When i try to boot up my pc i get a blue screen with this:
    STOP: 0x000000A5 (Parameter1, Parameter2, Parameter3, Parameter4)
    The ACPI Bios in this system is not fully compliant to the specification. Please read the Readme.txt for possible workarounds, or contact your system vendor for an updated bios.

    The bios in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor for an updated bios. If you are unable to obtain an updated bios or the latest bios supplied by your vendor is not ACPI compliant, you can turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed--it will silently disable ACPI and allow you to continue your installation."

    I try pressing F7 and disabling ACPI but it still doesnt work. Im running an ASUS a8n32 SLI Deluxe, AMD Athlon x2 4400+, 1gb Corsair TWINX XMS3200, and a wd 320gb sata. If it might help for the first paramater i get 0x00000002.

    Try booting from a floppy with the memory test on it. If you can't even boot from a floppy, it's time to start basic hardware troubleshooting. The fact that you're getting an ACPI message seems to indicate it's starting into the Windows boot.

    Yeah im trying to get it on a floppy but this computer isnt reading the floppies so i cant put anything on it. Do you think its this BIOS because my current version is like 1033 and on the ASUS website there is a version 1205.

    The BIOS won't prevent you from booting a floppy, you have a more basic issue.
