computer restarts problem still not fixed
Posted on 2006-07-18
my computer just restarts before getting the window banner.this happens 10-15 times in row.so times if i am lucky i go to the windows main panel.i checked the event log and i had this error in system option.the error mentioned was
AMLI:ACPI BIOS is attempting to read from a illegal IO port address(0x71),which lies in the 0x70-0x71 protected address range.this could lead to system instability.
i want to make sure what the problem is before changing my hard disk.please help
another problem i have i tried to use this PowerMax application to test my HD which is maxtor.but it requires a floppy disk,which my computer does not have.is there another way to test it.i mean using flash drives....
