Hi guys,

Its been some time, and I can tell you guys I really did read all of the documents posted about the acpi and apm problem.
I have posten my problem before in great extent and will keep it short this time :)

My computer is ACPI complient, but Windows XP doesnt like it and crashes my computer occasionally with the well known errors. I then decided to follow up all your advice and reinstall with the Hall for 'standard pc'. I did so with good results. My computer runs now and it doesnt crash under XP. However I don;t have an APM tab under power options. Since this is a notebook it would be nice to have one. The documents I read suggest I should enable power management in the bios, but I disabled it because of your suggestions.

What do I have to do to make the APM tab show up in Win XP? Should I enable it in the bios anyway?
