If if you have the issue and you are lucky enough to have a BIOS update for your motherboard that fixes it then try that.
If you haven't yet you need to go through your Steam games and use the following so you don't have to worry about this crap:
In this order:
Goldberg Steam Emulator (Linux) (Windows) (Vista+ but can be used on XP with Xompie)
SmartSteamEmu (Windows) (XP+)
Other Misc Steam Emulators
