How To Fix ACPI_BIOS_ERROR In Windows 10?

Reader Question:
“Hi Wally, I’m using Windows 10 on a Samsung laptop. It shows a blue screen with ACPI_BIOS_ERROR written on it. It says that it will restart automatically, and then it goes back to the blue screen. Please help.” – Casey K., USA

Before addressing any computer issue, I always recommend scanning and repairing any underlying problems affecting your PC health and performance:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (WinThruster for Win 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP and 2000 – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.

Setting up weekly (or daily) automatic scans will help prevent system problems and keep your PC running fast and trouble-free.

Wally’s Answer: Blue screen errors can seem to appear suddenly. These errors are usually caused by hardware or driver related issues, but their cause can be a bit difficult to determine. They can seem intimidating, but they’re not all that difficult to solve one you know the name of the error you want to fix. Here we will be looking at how to fix the ACPI_BIOS_ERROR error.

Problem

The ACPI_BIOS_ERROR appears and the computer restarts without going to the desktop.

The ACPI_BIOS_ERROR error can be caused by a corrupt device driver, malware, or damaged files among other things.

Solution

Here are some ways to fix the ACPI_BIOS_ERROR:

Automatic Startup Repair From Windows 10 Setup Disk

This should be triggered automatically in Windows 10. But if for some reason it is not being triggered, then you can run this process manually. You will need a bootable Windows 10 installation DVD or USB.

  1. Insert the disk, restart the computer, and wait for it to boot.
  2. Once it boots, click Next

Update The BIOS Driver To Fix The ACPI_BIOS_ERROR

Once Windows 10 starts in safe mode, you can install the BIOS driver to fix the ACPI_BIOS_ERROR. You can do this by visiting your comptuer manufacturer’s website and looking for your computer.

Once you find it, download the BIOS driver, and install it on the computer. If you don’t want to download the driver yourself, you can use third-party software like DriverDoc to do all the work for you by not only finding the newer version but also helping you install it.

Is Your PC Healthy?

I always recommend to my readers to regularly use a trusted registry cleaner and optimizer such as WinThruster or CCleaner. Many problems that you encounter can be attributed to a corrupt and bloated registry.
