I've just run a quick test, I've just re-install windows twice with ACPI enabled and disabled...

And I've decided to turn the ACPI off because from that quick test I've already encountered 2 things...

1. If I enable ACPI and playing mp3 with my winamp, sometimes it skips or pause when I'm doing something else, ex. browsing the net or my folders... while when I disable ACPI I've never encountered those kind of problem...

2. When ACPI enabled, I've experienced a bit jerkiness when playing MOH:AA and GTA3, while with ACPI disabled I didn't experienced such jerkiness... I didn't test it with other games, coz that 2 games is the only game that I've played often...

I've installed the latest drivers except for VIA 4in1, I never trust it, VIA driver which comes from XP is a lot better in my experience...

Well, that's my experience, and disabling ACPI doesn't seem to hurt my com, the only problem is my system cannot goes Standby, but I never use it anyway...
