Problem Description: After upgrading my Bios to version 3315, I have some error in /var/log/messages. Sometimes, I cannot boot, sometime, this stop before startx, randomly.

Error messages :
ACPI: EC: GPE=0x14, ports=0x66, 0x62
ACPI Error (psargs-0355): [\_SB_.PHSR] Namespace lookup failure, AE_NOT_FOUND
ACPI Error (psparse-0551): Method parse/execution failed [\_SB_.PCI0.LPC0.EC0_._REG] (Node f689f5a0), AE_NO

What I know :
Adding splash to boot parameter -> cannot boot

Boot with acpi=!Linux helps

Hi, Philippe
Will you please confirm whether the system can work before BIOS is upgraded?
It will be great if you can attach the output of dmesg, acpidump and lspci -vxxx before upgrading BIOS.

Comment 8 Philippe 2008-02-14 19:00:40 UTC

I found some old mails some attachments as acpidump, dmidecode and messages.log. This has been done with BIOS 3303.

To confirm, booting WITHOUT acpi_osi=!Linux brings me in a shell login, without startx. Then, I type startx, and I have a short and too fast message speaking I think about Xorg log.

Then I have on Gnome the message HAL not initialized, with no network, and no Shutdown button. Clicking on Logout freezes the laptop.

Hope this helps.
