I have been using WIN2K on a desktop for 18 months without an issue.  I had to install a modem card into the box and immediately Win2K blue screened with this ACPI error.

I removed the modem again and no difference, the result is the same.

2 questions here:

1. What has happened
2. How do I fix it?

Incompatible driver - did it warn you when your tried to install it?

Try pressing F8 on boot and using the last know good configuration

If the server will start in safe mode then do so. Go to the device manager, show hidden devices, find the ACPI drivers and disable them. Try a reboot and remove the modem drivers.
