NOIDE

I am setting up an Acer Aspire 1830 and need to get rid of the "NOIDE" from the registry at
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VXD\IOS.
I've deleted the value over and over again but it keeps coming back as soon as I restart. I have checked other machines, but the only ones that seem to do this are the Acer Aspires. Normally this is not a problem, but they are trying to run a game (Cabela's Big Game Hunter) and this game will not run while this value is in the registry.
I have checked with the manufacturer of the game, but they were no help.
Is there any way to perminantly get rid of this value?

P.S. What is the NOIDE value for anyway? It is not present on any of the other computers i have worked on unless there is a problem with the IDE controller.

Thanks jason, I had a look at the BIOS, (which i hadn't thought of before) but I didn't see anything that was unusual. I tried a couple of different settings but nothing seemed to help. I have since sent an e-mail to Acer, but I don't expect to hear back from them 'till Friday. I would like to get the computer back to it's owner before then. So if you've got any other ideas I'de love to hear 'em.

Thanks
Ben

tyendcom,

Although I spend a fair amount of time at EE, I answer questions only when I think my solutions have some value for the person asking the question.

I just saw the "D" grade for this question on the list of those questions that I have answered.

If you found the information I gave you to be unsatisfactory, I would really have preferred having it rejected than to be graded poorly.

Perhaps you could take the time to comment.
