Does the new BIOS allow you to disable HTT? I saw this when I first got my Acer, but decided that I had no reason to update the BIOS as it would present unnecessary problem to fix.
It does require a reinstall. Is there someway I could get cop someone else's HAL.dll? I guess I could torrent it.
Thanks for the info, all. I hope someone else has solved this problem and can help.
