I have an intermitant fault usually on boot up. After the initial screen (which says BIOS is ACPI compliant) goes to a coloured but distorted screen which says error code and that BIOS is not ACPI compliant. Sometimes instead get message saying video is not compatible with screen. Sometimes it just freezes before windows starts up. Sometimes initial screen is distorted with coloured blocks. Usually after maybe 10 attempts at starting up it starts fine and runs as well as ever - except a couple of times I accidently banged the table on which the case sits and the screen froze with distorted coloured blocks - in that case on power off/on it usually starts up ok. So, it seems to be worse when starting up from cold.
Many thanks in anticipation.
