Event ID 4 and 5 errors ?

Guest

In the morning, after the computer has been off all
night I turn on the monitor. And then turn on the
computer.
The CD drive lights and then nothing. XP does not start.
I then turn the computer off and wait a couple of
minutes and then turn it back on. The CD lights for a
moment, the floppy drive lights for a moment and then XP
loads as normal.
In the event log I have seen two errors, ID 4 and ID 5.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: ACPI
Event Category: None
Event ID: 4
Description:
AMLI: ACPI BIOS is attempting to read from an illegal IO
port address (0x71), which lies in the 0x70 - 0x71
protected address range. This could lead to system
instability

And

Event Type: Error
Event Source: ACPI
Event Category: None
Event ID: 5
Description:
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.

If I were to turn the computer off for 20 mintues or
so and then on again, it loads normally. I have only
noticed this after the computer has been off for hours,
such as all night.

Everything I have read on the internet says that this
has something to do with the BIOS. The BIOS says
0AAVIP13, the Gateway web page says this is the correct
and current BIOS version, so no update for that.

Any ideas to help me correct this.
The computer is a 2 year old gateway 330S with XP home
edition.

Thank you

Hello,
I have these errors every time I power on my pc.
It's never caused a problem. I've looked at the event
viewer of HP PC's in circuit city and I've seen the same errors
there.
You could contact gateway and ask them about it.
