I am familiar with APIC (Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller) which is responsible for multi-processor support. If this is what you mean, then try disabling it in BIOS (or enabling it if it's already disabled). I am assuming that you can get into BIOS, right?

Tyger.. first of all, the error message concerning ACPI compliance has absolutely NOTHING to do with the 80wire/40 pin connection.. That is strictly for the UDMA hard-drives that are being used now !! Not sure where you are getting your information from, but it is severely flawed !!!
luv: If you boot into BIOS, you can check to see if there is an ACPI setting in there.. If there is, make sure it is enabled..
To determine whether Windows XP Professional is running in ACPI mode
In Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
In the System Properties dialog box, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
In the details pane, click Computer.
If Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC is listed under Computer, the computer is operating in ACPI mode.
As per Microsoft..
If you have an ACPI BIOS, but Windows XP Professional is not installed in the ACPI mode, your ACPI BIOS might be noncompliant. Check with your computer manufacturer to see if a more recent, ACPI-compatible BIOS is available. If Windows XP Professional is installed in non-ACPI mode on your computer, and you upgrade to a new BIOS version, you must reinstall Windows XP Professional to enable ACPI mode.
