AMLI: ACPI BIOS is attempting to read from an illegal IO port address (0xcfc), which lies in the 0xcf8 - 0xcff protected address range. This could lead to system instability. Please contact your system vendor for technical assistance.

Here's an explanation click here

Is this a new machine or an "old" one upgraded to XP. If new then you need to get the supplier to sort it out. If not then this article suggests that you need to upgrade ("flash") your BIOS - not for the faint of heart.
