We work with a Precision 420 with dual 1gig intel p3 processors and every once in a while when logging into a system or running various tasks unattended. I have a feeling the problem is with the automatic power management - which is turned off in windows and is not accessable in the pheniox bios. Therefore, I have a question about the drivers for the processor:
1. what is the difference between ACPI and MPC multiprocessor PC drivers?
2. when I'm logged in as admin, only one driver shows up in device manager but as a user, multiple drivers show.
3. any further ideas?

I think I'm basicly looking for a good description between the differences between the kernel drivers: ACPI vs. MPC.

Then don't insult me with a "C".  I don't need the points and if you don't like an answer, delete the question and get a refund.
