FAQ: AL150 - ACPI Confict in Win 98SE/Win ME

 

Follow these instructions to edit your Windows Registry and permanently avoid lockups while starting AL150 software (if you have an ACPI Conflict in Win 98SE/ Win ME)

(Note: Your Windows Operating System’s Registry is a critical component of your system… an error or typo may disable your system! Creating a boot disk is recommended before proceeding.)

  • Close all programs, click your START button, then click on RUN (a small white text box should appear)
  • In the white text box, type in “REGEDIT” then click the “OK” button (this will bring up a new window with folders listed)
  • Click on the “+” next to the “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE” folder (this will expand the list to show the contents of this folder)
  • Click on the “+” next to the “System” folder
  • Click on the “+” next to the “CurrentControlSet” folder
  • Click on the “+” next to the “Services” folder
  • Click on the “+” next to the “VxD” folder
  • In the “VXD” folder, locate the folder named “VCOMM” and SINGLE click on the icon next to it.
  • In the right hand window, you will see an icon for “EnablePowerManagement” with “01 00 00 00” or “00 00 00 00” after it. If the number reads “01 00 00 00”* then:
  • DOUBLE click the “ENABLE POWER” icon to bring up a new window showing “0000 01 00 00 00”.
  • Change the # to “0000 00 00 00 00” by clicking near the “01” and deleting it, then typing “0”
  • Close all windows, reboot computer and test AL150 software.

* If the number reads “00 00 00 00” ALREADY or if the problem is not solved, contact Terry at Able Label Systems.
