Microsoft acpi driver

I am not able to get my computer to switch off after shutdown. I have searched enough for some suggestions and based on my reaserch I found that the microsoft acpi driver is missing. I think that my computer needs this to complete a full shutdown and switch off? I am on Windows XP, can anyone please help. Thanks

RE: Microsoft acpi driver

I guess that you will have to reinstall your Video card drivers of the motherboard drivers if the video card is integrated in the board, check the below links:

Re: Microsoft acpi driver

Thanks but after following the links, it didnt fix my issue. I think that what I found was that microsoft acpi driver is missing, so this is the main cause of the problem. Can you suggest me how to reinstall this driver? Thanks once again

Re: Microsoft acpi driver

You can copy it from the CD to the below path on your computer or from another computer to your machine:

C:\Windows\System32\drivers is the path where you need to copy it in the drivers folders and then restart. Also, try to run sfc /scannow from the run command and get your XP CD to insert it in if the system ask you to do so.
