You can leave out the "please some help  ". It's annoying and won't get you help any quicker. Have you placed the ACPI=FORCE into the appropriate line of your grub menu? Pick the one that contains the kernel you want to use. Edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file and that should make it permanent.
cheers,
jdk

I entered it, in /home/boot/grub/menu.lst but i cant save it, it denies the permision.

Zany, you need to read up on the basics of linux. Of course you can't edit it (or any other system file) as a normal user. You have to be root or use sudo to do this.

I have no idea what you're talking about here. Do you have the problem with all the OS's installed on your machine or only with Ubuntu?
cheers,

thx, the first thing i tried it with sudi and cant do it, but later tried with nautilus and it worked fine

in the second point, every time i change the OS, the ACPI erase itself, because its in the ubuntu configuration, if i give format to the hard drive, it erase all of ubuntu.... so when i change of OS, the acpi dissapears with the ubuntu configuration and grub, because i cant get the dual boot
