BSOD Acer laptop running VISTA

  recap 14:43 10 Feb 2008

My son has a problem with an Acer laptop,
Model: Aspire 7720
processor: Intel( r) Core 2 duo cpu T7300 @ 2.00Ghz

An event id error 13 with a source ACPI is the only error showing in the Event Viewer. Description:
The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This may indicate that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or that the BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS. In some situations, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.

I have looked on the net but cannot pinpoint anything that may be help.

Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.

Are you getting laptop failure?
Blue screens of death with error messages?
Freezing or random reboots?
