    ACPI is power management. See if Toshiba has any XP downloads related to power management.

    Regarding automatic updates, you should try doing a manual download of SP3 (or SP2, if you want to be safe) and see if that fixes the problem. If you go with SP2, make sure to update to SP3 once you get everything to work.

    By the way, if you are running XP with file sharing enabled, make sure that you do NOT plug your machine into a network until you have all the latest updates. Also be sure to enable the Windows firewall (or better yet, install a thrid party firewall such as Comodo or Sunbelt).
