Hi,

ACPI is the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface. Have you tried clearing the CMOS (loading optimized BIOS defaults)?

How can i do that? accessing the bios on startup isn't working through any traditional means... ie f8 or f1-12 and with a combination of shift or the function key...

Thank you for the quick response!

Good to hear.

If the optimized BIOS defaults does not help, it's possible there's a device driver conflicting on startup. If that's the case, boot into safe mode with networking (if possible) and zip up and upload the DMP files to a site like Skydrive, etc, to be analyzed so we can pinpoint the problem.

Unfortunately I cannot get into safe mode or any of the advanced startup options. Is the acpi bios error a hardware failure?

You said you found the info on Google, so I assumed you meant you found out how to access the Advanced Startup Options. Does f12 not work on boot? I don't have access to a Win8 machine, so I can't check, but I have read that holding Shift + F8 in some cases can access it as well. You'll need to do it quickly, especially if fast-startup is enabled.

I found the info on resetting the cmos. I'll definitely be trying that first thing tomorrow when i can get a hold of my computer.. A tech has it right now. But unfortunately all the combos of function keys i've tried didn't work. Its a samsung as well and their tech support had me try f8 f4 and f2, with and without holding the shift key. I think my last resort is trying to reset the cmos.

Thank you again,

I had the same problem with a samsung series 5. I was able to start system recovery by pressing and holding F4 during 'startup'. I hope this works for you as well.
