I am running the 32 bit version of linux on a 64 bit processor.
Linux loads only with acpi=off noapic
I was able to boot only once with the variable "acpi_osi=Linux noapic" with a marked diffrence in power management. The changes noticed where:
Fan did not start immedeatly.
Laptop powered down when shutting down (Usually I have to manually press the power switch to power down)
Steps to reproduce:

Output of dmidecode
what can you see when the laptop hangs with acpi enabled?
It would be great if you can get the dmesg via a serial console or get a photograph of your screen when the laptop hangs. :)
BTW: what if you boot with acpi=noirq and noapic?

did you boo the kernel with "acpi=off" or "acpi=off noapic"?
Can you please clear CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI and boot with pci=nommconf and pnpacpi=off (acpi is enabled)?
Please take a picture of the screen if it still hangs.
Please attach the lspci output as well. :)

Is this a reply to acip=noirq Picutre? In that case the option was
title Fedora (184.108.40.206-52.fc7) test
kernel /vmlinuz-220.127.116.11-52.fc7 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 acpi=noirq noapic rhgb
In the other picutre the option was the same as above but acpi=noirq was substitued with acpi_osi=Linux.

Ps: I have not compiled the kernel before. I could do it but I'll need a little time to go through some tutorials.
If I could get some pointers it would be helpful.

google "build a custom linux kernel", :)
thomas, any updates on this?
I'll close this bug if you can not provide the info I mentioned in comment #10.
Give me one more day. I was able to recompile the kernel. I will take pictures and upload it.
I'm Sorry. I dont think I'm able to do this. Whenever I try to compile the kernel on my system. The laptop shut's down.
If I'm able to Compile the Kernel. I will request you to reopen the issue. Thanks for your effort.
I'll keep trying.
Just wanted to let you know that this computer works funtastatic on Ubuntu 7.10.
The Sleep button works,
The Lid Close Works.
The Fan is not running all the time.
