Hi Folks, in right click mycomputer/properties/device manager/system devices/system board extension for ACPI BIOS, I have a yellow exclamtion mark.  I have tried to update the driver for it but as yet have been unable to do so.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check to see if ACPI is enabled or disabled in the BIOS. T

Hello tmj883, I checked to see if it was enabled and yes it is.  After the reboot the exclamtion mark is still there.
The system works fine, its just that it should not be there, and I would like to deal with it somehow.
 I have looked on the microsoft site, but have not found the appropriate message.  I will keep looking, thanks for the post.

restart in safe mode and see if there are multiple bios entries in the device manager.  If there are, remove all of them and restart.

when you try to reinstall the driver through windows device manager, does it give you any kind of error and abort the installation? or does it say installation complete?
