[attachment=55922:Acpiec.JPG]I have begun noticing recently that I get the following error in Event Viewer for my laptop. System seems to operate ok but I wanted to head off any problems. Here is the text of the problem.

Thanks for your help.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: ACPIEC
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1
Date: 2/4/2012
Time: 4:19:20 PM
User: N/A
Computer: S0034324532
Description:
\Device\ACPIEC: The embedded controller (EC) hardware didn't respond within the timeout period. This may indicate an error in the EC hardware or firmware, or possibly a poorly designed BIOS which accesses the EC in an unsafe manner. The EC driver will retry the failed transaction if possible.

Seems to be a well known error: ACPIEC error

Fixes and suggestions vary all over the place. Many point to a BIOS update as a fix, others to heat problems.

Sorry I don't have better help but that's all I could find.
