Megabook Acting Up

My less than a year old MSI Core Duo Megabook has been acting up these past couple of days. It just shuts off without warning, much like the problem I used to have with my old unit. I really am not sure if it’a computer memory issue, because I already have a separate external hard drive to house my files.

The dilemma is actually if I should have it checked or not. If I will have it checked, I am left with the hubby’s work station which is ultra slow compared to my notebook. And if I do, whatever the problem is, chances are the warranty will answer the cost.

Here is the message that prompts whenever I try to turn my unit back on after it mysteriously shuts off by itself. Maybe you know where the problem lies and how urgent it needs to get dealt with. Care to share?

The problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you’ve seen this stop error screen, restart your computer.If this screen appears again, follow these steps: The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant.Please contact your system vendor or visit for an updated BIOS.
