My desktop and laptop are both running Vista. They are both having issues while booting from a shut down. They sometimes hang and either crash or an error message appears when started. If they are coming out of a hibernate or sleep mode, they seem to do just fine. The Event Viewer for the desktop is showing all the following error messages (the laptop is only showing 2 of them):

IRQARB: ACPI BIOS does not contain an IRQ for the device in PCI slot 14, function 0. Please contact your system vendor for technical assistance.

IRQARB: ACPI BIOS does not contain an IRQ for the device in PCI slot 13, function 0. Please contact your system vendor for technical assistance.

IRQARB: ACPI BIOS does not contain an IRQ for the device in PCI slot 12, function 0. Please contact your system vendor for technical assistance.

IRQARB: ACPI BIOS does not contain an IRQ for the device in PCI slot 11, function 0. Please contact your system vendor for technical assistance.

This is effecting the computers' performance and I am looking for any answers as to why this is happening. I thought it was a hardware issue when my desktop first started with the errors, but when my laptop started the errors, it ruled out the hardware. I also have run all sorts of anti-virus and anti-spam software to see if that was the problem, but I have 2 other desktops on my network and they are running just fine with Windows XP. I think this is a Vista problem, but cannot narrow it down.

Please Help...

I'm late for work, but have a look at this thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/124041/bios-irq-pci-slot-errors/

What is the make and model of your system? Do you have an additional devices installed inside the case?

What make and model is your system (such as HP dv9260us or Gateway GT5454)? Sometimes this is normal behavior for certain systems (in particular I've seen a lot of it in HP's) - and could be due to using different BIOS's with several different systems.

How have you determined that this is affecting your computer's performance? What tools did you use?
