View Full Version : Exorsizing ACPI driver from XP Pro?

Hi All,

This is my first post here - hope I'm in the right place.

I have PC dedicated to audio, some music composition, and a lot of goofing-off.

I upgraded from 98SE to XP pro (1.5GHz P4 w/768MB SDRAM) to accomodate new sequencing software. I need to disable, actually remove the ACPI to eliminate concerns about XP Pro sharing the IRQ my sound card performance lives or dies by...

Can anyone point me to a link on how to reconfigure XP Pro as a 'PC" versus ACPI? I've suceeded this task with Win 2K, but don't recall the procedure or where I found it. (I do remember what a nightmare it is getting the system going again:)

Worse case I'll have to re-install XP clean, so I'm not too concerned if the cure is worse than the ailment....

Thanks! - :cool:

Whadya know..

Found what I was looking for...If you use 2K/XP may come in handy if you use multimedia intensive apps.

warm regards -E:cool:

So what was the secret?!!!!!:D

I need to do this on my machine as well - don't fancy a complete rei-install. MY A+ Tutor summed XP up nicely - great unless you want to change anything!
