Computer Crashing

Dave

I've only just purchesed my version of windows XP and im
exstreamly disapointed. In under a week my comouter must
have crashed atleast 20 time's. And because today is the
only day i get to mess around with my computer i decided
to try and find out why it was crashing.

I found that these -

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.

AMLI: ACPI BIOS is attempting to write to an illegal IO
port address (0x70), which lies in the 0x70 - 0x71
protected address range. This could lead to system
instability. Please contact your system vendor for
technical assistance.

Are the main two problems that i keep seeing in the Error
Log. I have updated my Bios and installed all of the
updates from the offical website still to no avail. Can
anybody help.

Go to a support forum for your particular motherboard (I like the ones
on www.amdmb.com) and see if anyone ever found a fix for this error
with your board. Since you've already updated the BIOS, that's not the
answer. I had an older Iwill board that was never stable with any
Windows NT-kernel-based os and I replaced it with an MSI board.

If ACPI is causing trouble you might get around things by disabling it
in the BIOS power management. You might then find a need to remove it
from Windows as well - that needs a repair reinstall. For that Set the
BIOS to boot CD before Hard disk, then boot the XP CD, start Setup (do
not take 'Repair' at this stage), then after the license agreement take
'Repair Installation'. This will retain your existing software
installations and most settings. But any updates will have been removed
and need to be done again

At the first reboot, change the boot order back to Hard disk first. You
will then get a black screen with a white bar - 'Hit F6 to install
special. . . '. Hit F7 instead; nothing will appear to happen, but the
system will install without ACPI. Only thing you would then need is to
go to Power Options - APM and Enable APM so as to support Power off at
shutdown
