    I tried to do my boyfriend a good deed by fixing his computer and I broke it worse. His laptop Sony Vaio was reinstalled with Windows 200 Pro.. which sucks anyway thats why I have XP- which sucks less. Anyway now he has no sound and his computer goes black every 3 minutes. It won't do anything if you touch any of the buttons including Cntl- Alt- Del. And if it goes into Standby becasue you made it the same thing happens.

    I looked online and found info about the bios and ACPI stuff- I will take a look at his computer tomorrow.. can anyone explain this better to me? I think I might have a messed up Win 2000 disk as well.

    Most likely you will need to download and install a BIOS upgrade and Sony drivers for XP from Sony's support web site. As the generic drivers on the XP CD are not the right ones.
