I have a dell inspiron 8200, which has a bios that sort of works with
acpi, but will sometimes crash (see previous emails). I have looked at
my dsdt, and it is extraordinarily cryptic.
Today, I was googling for information about all of this, and came across
somebody flashing their insprion 8200 bios with the bios for the dell
latitude c840. This person was doing this to be able to use the port
replicator properly, and was running windows. He reported success and
no problems. This seems like a crazy thing to do-- is it safe? I
figured I may have to flash back to the old bios, but was worried that
this might break something permanently?
