Everytime I turn on my computer, these 2 errors appear in event viewer under system:

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

The DVDRIVER service failed to start due to the following error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

I have to update my BIOS to fix the first one but I've never done one before.

I have no idea about the second one

Any ideas?
Thanks

Have you checked in your services management to find out if the DVDRIVER service is disabled?

If it is, enable it :)

If it is already enabled, double-click the service and click on the "Dependencies" tab. See if anything there catches your eye that may be malfunctioning. Also, if it is enabled already, try to manually start/stop the service and check your event log for errors.

Sometimes these are driver (Non-Plug and Play) entries from something you had uninstalled but the entry remained in device manager.

Start > Run > devmgmt.msc

At the top of device manager window click on View > show hidden devices

Now the entry for Non-Plug and Play drivers will show up so see if any have ! marks. If so then uninstall them or try to update the driver.

Cool info. I have a hidden device that has a splat on it. Amusingly the functions associated with that driver work fine.

Now I get to figure out what the 30 out of the 40 hidden devices listed are that I don't recognize and if I still want/need them. A project for this weekend! :)
