ACPI DB - fill the form

  Date: 2009-05-04 02:26:04
Correspondent: Eugene Gorbunoff

eCo Software needs help, let's collect the information about ACPI.PSD support of your PC one more time. The goal - create the database for eCS installer, so ACPI may be configured automatically.

Yes, there are several databases with such information,
Yes, every user posted this information several times, but processing/sorting of this data will require huge efforts. (databases -> Tested hardware)

  • ACPI Matrix -- users fill the information immediately after eCS installation. So this information is preliminary.
  • The listings of motherboards and noetbooks on - the users describe the whole computer and don't write details about ACPI.
  • Short list - short information
  • bug-tracker - contains description of problems, not solutions.

So, if ACPI works on your PC then spend 5 minutes and fill the form form

send it via:
