Did a clean install with win2x then updated with winxp. Have all updates. PCI devices include Lucent modem and Creative Lab Sound Blaster Live. Both are operational.

Device manager shows "Unsupported Device"  ACPI\MGMT180\2&DABA3FF&0.

Have uninstalled device from device manager and had computer re-find, same thing.

What is it???

ACPI is Advanced Configuration and Power Interface.

Used especially in laptops to manage power settings, but probably in desktops for sleep/hibernate/ etc...  You should go to motherboard's manufacturer website and download their drivers.
