"¡Perfecto! Casi me vuelvo loco buscando este dispositivo que Windows XP Pro SP2 no reconoce (ACPI\AWY0001) Ha funcionado sin problemas. Lo extraño es que este dispositivo en una característica de la placa base para procesadores AMD (AMD LIVE) y la placa en la que lo he instalado es un Pentium Socket 775. De todos modos, ha funcionado.

Perfect! I almost get crazy search

"The DriverGuide tool insists that this is an update for the AMD Turion64 mobile CPU.

1. There is no install procedure and no instructions. You must go to the Device Manager and figure out if it's the CPU or the ACPI driver.

2. When I selected update driver and pointed to the correct location for the .INF file, XP complained that the file did not contain a descriptio

"Excellent!!! Worked perfect on Windows 7 32bit, RTM 7600, in an HP Media Center PC m7630la. The device was identified as ACPI\AWY0001\4&1EC577C0&0 in DevManager. The correct name (shown after installation) is "AMD AwayMode". This was strange to me, because the machine's got a Pentium D processor... and ATI Radeon Xpress 200 GPU :D . Greetings from México
