BIOS not fully compliant with ACPI error

  1. Trying to install Windows 2000 on an Ergo/Twinhead laptop.

    When I first tried it, came up with a Blue Screen error telling me
    the
    BIOS was not ACPI compliant. I found this:-

    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=256841

    So, I hit F7 as it suggests and it seems to go further. Now however,
    I
    get an error message saying setup cannot find keyboard.

    Any ideas? (Yes, kbd works).

    So far I've tried:-
    1. Looking to disable ACPI in BIOS - no option
    2. A usb keyboard - doesnt recognise
    3. A newer BIOS - this is the newest
