XP error log

I recently installed XP Home Edition, like last week. I looked at the XP error log and found I had 18 pages of errors. I would appreciate help on what is causing these errors and how to fix.

1. Service Control Manager (212 errors). "The Application Management service terminated with the following error: The specified module could not be found."

2. ACPI (76 errors). "AMLI: ACPI BIOS is attempting to write to an illegal IO port address (0x70), which lies in the 0x70 - 0x71 protected address range. This could lead to system instability. Please contact your system vendor for technical assistance."
(How would I know which system it is and what program or what device is causing this?)

3. ATAPI (10 errors). "The device, |Device\Ide\Ide\Port1, did not respond within the timeout period."
(Again how do I know what device this is?)

4. DCOM (47 errors). "The server {520CCA63-51A5-11D3-9144-00104 BA11C5E} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

5. Cdrom (21 errors). "The device, \Device\Cdrom1, has a bad block.

I can not play my CDROM that is in the says no disc in D drive...I can only play Windows Media Player..

Any help on these would certainly be appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to respond to my concerns.

It sounds like you may have installed XP using an outdated motherboard. BIOS updates are very risky, but that is what MS suggests:

On the cd rom message, about all I can suggest is checking through google and google groups, many others have had it; perhaps a bad lens on the drive?

As for the DCOM error, it may not be significant. In fact it is a security risk all together, you might try disabling dcom using Steve Gibson's approach and see if that rids the event viewr of it.
