ACPI event id 4

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?)

Hi all,
Hoping for some suggestions. The bios isn't that old (2001)?
XP Pro pc with periodic stop errors on shutdown - will post exact code next
time error rec'd. Turning back on - pc prompting for safe mode boot. The
only option that worked was "returning pc to last know working hardware
configuration.
Going to event viewer shows ACPI errors daily. Drivers all current. Board
is ASUS TUV4X, P3 - 1000 mhz, 768 ram. I deselected "enable hibernation"
from MS support KB info on ACPI errors on shutdown.

Am I missing something here?

    Teris,
    The bios isn't that old (2001)?
    It's not that young either! Do you have StyleXP installed on this
    computer?
