ACPI BIOS ERROR

Hi all,

We have a dl380R01 running quite some time. Last week after a ungraceful shutdown we have
an event id 11 in the system event log each time we boot our server. Does anyone have any idea what can be the cause and how to resolve?

Type: Error
Source: ACPI
Event ID: 11
Event Time: 4/06/2007 19:26:09
User: n/a
Computer: DNA2
Description:
GPE: ACPI BIOS is trying to reference a GPE Index (13) when there are no GPE
blocks defined by the BIOS. Please contact your system vendor for technical
assistance.

Re: ACPI BIOS ERROR

Just an extra comment: ACPI erros can also be caused by faulty components like a faulty PCI card or an incompatible PCI card. So in case upgrading firmware doesn't resolve the problem reducing system configuration to minimum, reseating and swping component are the steps to follow...
