problems installing windowsXp home edition

Guest

After having problems with my old version of window xp pro but without any
backup I decided to purchase and install windows Xp home edtion. I
reformatted the "c" drive and installed win xp home but the system has
continued to be unstable. This is particularly the case, though not always,
if I use any files that use multimeadia. The error log report repeatedly
reports the following error

"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."

I have tried installing service pack 2 pack the system crashed during it's
installation. What do suggest I do? Do you think it's a harware problem?
Before the purchasing win xp and I had installed a logitech webcam and it
seems like that's when the problems began. However I long ago unplugged the
webcam and uninstalled the the software associated with it. Do you think it
done some damage to my graphics or video card ?

What you have posted sounds like a hardware problem.
While I do not have an answer for your specific problem, please ignore the
SPAM from "lol" and wait for someone you can address your problem.

Hi Robin,

This issue requires a BIOS update from the system manufacturer or
motherboard maker. What sort of system is it?

Hi Rick
Thanks for your reply
as far as i can tell it's a Matsonic Via Applo Pro 133T MS 7177CT
I'll look into updating the BIOS. Although I'm flying blind a little here
in that I don't have alot of technical expertise. Found some info in the
manual bout updating BIOs
