Hi. My NoteBook is a HP DV8000t Dual core I had to change from ACPI multiprocessor, to MPS Multiprocessor PC to get rid of severe dropouts that I had with my firewire audio card (TC Konnekt24D) There are a few side effects that I can live with: -the good old "it is now safe to turn off your compiuter) is back - The Texas Instruments flashMedia won't install (yellow ! on the drivers) - Yellow ! on Intel PCI Express root port 27D0 & 27D2 (the third one 27d4 seems OK) beside that everything seems to work fine. The question is, if there is something else that I'm not aware of. Any idea? Thank you.
