    i noticed the other day that when i go to
    control panel -> system -> Device Manager -> System Devices
    that there is a black exclamation mark in a yellow circle on where it says 'advanced power management support' ive not a clue what this is but though i would get it checked out! so is it affecting my computer? or is it just nothing? thanks

    It's nothing to worry about unless you want to use the Advanced Power settings which it sounds like your not using. Basically it won't cause problems in other areas or effect the overall performance of the PC if the APM drivers aren't loaded so I'd just leave it be.

    This should mean that "advanced power management" is disabled in your bios. For most schools of thought, this is a good thing.
