Latest working kernel version: 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP
Earliest failing kernel version: 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP
Distribution: Ubuntu Gutsy 7.1
Hardware Environment: Acer Aspire 5053WXMi
Software Environment: Linux Ubuntu Gnome
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
No battery indicator in gnome (Always said laptop on UC power)
Boot with acpi=!Linux helps
Ready to give you more information
Steps to reproduce: Boot

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.

var/log/messages Bios 3303
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.
