    55This is the development and support home for ACPI Project.

    7 The software in this project is not ACPI. The ACPI is supplied by your computer's vendor in the BIOS. The software in this project is a Platform Specific Driver (PSD) and related files and programs that use the ACPI in your computer's BIOS to configure and operate your computer.
     7Even though we call this project the ACPI project, the software in this project is not really ACPI. The ACPI is supplied by your computer's vendor in the BIOS. The software in this project is a Platform Specific Driver (PSD) and related files and programs that use the ACPI in your computer's BIOS to configure and operate your computer.

    2021 * The [#ApplicationDriverDevelopers toolkit] - For developing programs that interface with ACPI.PSD

    23 In order to use this software you must have a system with valid ACPI tables. This software is not supported on systems without valid ACPI tables. The PSD in this software package is not a "universal" PSD. It is an ACPI based PSD. This means that valid ACPI tables are required for this software to operate correctly and this software does not attempt to fix every quirk in every system unless those quirks are addressed in the ACPI tables. All modern computers have ACPI tables. This software will fail to load if your system does not have ACPI tables. In addition, some functions may fail to work properly if your ACPI tables are defective. It was common for older computers to have broken ACPI tables, but the situation is getting better. If you have a problem with bad ACPI tables, your computer vendor may have updated ACPI tables that you can install.
