ACPI BIOS System Error

Guest

Can anyone help me identify this error report from my XP system event viewer
folder as follows:

Details
Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 4
Source: ACPI
Version: 5.2
Symbolic Name: ACPI_ERR_AMLI_ILLEGAL_IO_READ_FATAL
Message: %2: ACPI BIOS is attempting to read from an illegal IO port address
(%3), which lies in the %4 protected address range. This could lead to system
instability. Please contact your system vendor for technical assistance.

Explanation
The system BIOS attempted to incorrectly access hardware resources
concurrently with the operating system. This type of access cannot be
synchronized and can cause system instability.


User Action
Contact the system vendor for an updated BIOS and follow the vendor's
instructions for installation.


Please note that this is a Compaq Presario originally with Windows 98 and
upgraded to XP with FAT32 OS.
Thank you for your attention.
