I received the PC today and reset the BIOS and the error went away. Someone changed the settings in BIOS somewhere. Thanks for help,
Usually this issue is because your motherboard has an infra-red port and Windows* XP does not have the drivers or you have a system that supports Viiv(TM) technology but it is not fully compliant. You should contact your system manufacturer and get the latest BIOS and then confirm that Windows* XP is fully supported on your computer.
Indeed, BigThor is right.
On some media series Intel (R) Desktop Board, you may need to disable Intel (R) Quick Resume Technology in the bios when you have another yellow bang on acpi.
