ACPI problems with X-Fi Chipsets???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
well, before i reformatted, i bought a SB X-Fi XtremeMusic. It is amazing. The second i enabled battlefield 2 to use the X-Fi sound drivers, i blue-screened and it said that there was an ACPI problem with the BIOS or some bull**** like that.
anyways, i took out the X-Fi card and it ran fine again. I want to enable BF2 to use the X-Fi drivers but how do i do so without my comp crashing???
thanks,
eclipse

Did you disable onboard sound in the BIOS? That can be your problem.

A problem was identified on nForce4 based systems where the system ran into difficulties, related to the enumeration of the cards with 2MB (X-Fi XtremeMusic and X-Fi Platinum). This resulted in a variety of symptoms:

- The system may freeze or not boot

- The system may list multiple "Unknown PCI Device" entries and lead to a BSOD

- The system may reboot repeatedly (when "Automatically Restart" is enabled in the Advanced system settings)

Some motherboard manufacturers have already acknowledged this issue and released a BIOS update to resolve it. For systems where a BIOS update is not available we will be providing an alternative resolution in the form of a replacement card with modified firmware. Please contact Customer Support for your region for further details.
