Ive got a comp that i restored using norton ghost....however when i try to shut it down it does not completely power off until i hit the power button. I checked the Power options and so forth and eventually determined that Windows XP was installed without ACPI support. Ive checkd all the hardware bios (version adn if it was enabled)and motherboard... and everything seems to be in compliance and enabled. So im not sure why its not there.

Im trying to find a way to install ACPI support without having to reinstall the operating system all over again.

If you have any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Is you ACPI support enabled in you bios?
Also you might try going into device manager, system devices and see if the ACPI is there, if it is there try updateing the drivers, using the ones from your motherboard disk. if they are not there go into add new hard ware wizard and when it gives you a list of hardware to install look for ACPI uniprosser and have it install that using your motherboard cd again.
