Hi Guys, my pc has been playing up lately and doing many strange and wonderful things, sometimes it wont boot up other times its just keeps freezing, have come across a message in system information error log which looks very strange, dont know if this is reason for the strange going on's .The message reads " amli:acpi biosis attempting to read from illegal 10 port address (0x75) which lies in the 0x74-0x76 protected address range. This could lead to system instability. pleas contact your system vendor for technical assistance" any ideas please. o/s is xp pro, sp2.
How many beeps do you get on startup? If there's sometimes 1 long one then a couple of short ones it could be faulty memory. Another reason for this message is a BIOS problem. Go to the website of your motherboard manufacturer and download a BIOS update to see if this solves the problem.
