    Windows XP Professional Hangs I DON't know why!!! It hangs when i play games, ms word, internet or just playing mp3. I thought it was the memory so i tried to remove my 2 216 mb memory but still hangs and it tried to remove the 521 mb memory but still hangs so its not the memory. The i tried to see the management in my computer

    the most errors i see is

    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.

    and the error mathces from the time it hangs
    how can i fix this

    My System is

    AMD 800 Duron
    ASUS Geforce 2 MX400 AGP Video Card
    1 GB RAM (But now is 512 because i remove the other 512)
    MS WIN XP Pro
    USB Modem
    Keyboard and Wireless Mouse

    Most Runned Programs: Corel Draw, NBA Live 2003, 3DSMAX5, MS WORD, CnC Generals

    sometimes Blue Screens appears when it hangs it shows

    PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    What the heck is this?

    It sounds like you need to update your BIOS, if there is an update available.

    The ACPI BIOS error is showing your Motherboard BIOS isn't compatible with Wiindows XP

    Its a tricky job flashing the BIOS, if your system is new then take it back. If it goes wrong, it can make your motherboard unuseable.
