When you install Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional on a computer with a non-Advanced Configuration Power Interface basic input/output system (ACPI BIOS), sound devices do not work and you receive the following error message:
This behavior occurs when you install Windows 2000 on a computer that uses an advanced power management (APM) BIOS. The APM BIOS does not allocate resources to the sound device because Windows 2000 does not consider APM BIOS to be a Plug and Play BIOS.
To work around this issue, disable Plug and Play in the system BIOS and enable all devices.
This behavior is by design.
