I have a really annoying problem. My computer restarts very often, and when i look in he event logger, i find this message every time:

AMLI: ACPI BIOS is attempting to read from an illegal IO port address (0xcfc), which lies in the 0xcf8 - 0xcff protected address range. This could lead to system instability. Please contact your system vendor for technical assistance.

Does annyone know what's wrong??

no, my BIOS is the newest available.

it must be some kind of software. It hasn't been a problem earlier, and this installation of XP conttains a lot of programs and stuff....

You might consider rolling your bios back one or two revisions and see if that helps. That article was pretty specific that it is a ACPI bios issue.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
