APM/ACPI BIOS questions

Hey guys!

I tried running Bios Agent, but it crashed my compu. very interesting. Anyway, I have a custom built laptop with a SystemSoft bios, and it's got the latest bios as far as I know (v. 1.08), but the bios IS pretty old.

The ACPI bios is by Insyde, and it's a Insyde MobilePRO bios version 1.2. I guess it's never been updated.
Do you think I can update the ACPI bios separately for my main bios? The system suggests this, as the acpi bios is loaded only after everything else. Or is this nonsense?

The trick is, that my notebook builder is probably not too keen on being up to date with biosses as they were bought out last year. So how do I go about looking for an updated bios?

Oh, I forgot, but I got the same problem with windows XP as the other two XP problems in this group. You know, illegal adress writes and reads and in addition a nice "ACPI BIOS is attempting to write to an illegal PCI Operation Region (0x20)".

Can anyone help?
