hey guys and gals I'm having a little problem here....I just finished installing windows xp pro and when the computer restarts, I'll move the mouse over the start menu, and the display will appear, move my mouse around and the computer restarts itself. I've checked the power supply and I thought mabey there was a resource conflict, so I removed all of the hardware except the cd drive and still the same thing....this is the message when I go into the Event Viewer:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: ACPI
Event Category: None
Event ID: 4

Description:
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.
