Hi John,

What is this system? A desktop? What is the motherboard?

Please send me the output from:
- dmesg
- /proc/interrupts
- /proc/ioports
- /proc/iomem
- the output from /proc/acpi/dsdt (if possible) or get pmtools from and please
provide the output from acpidmp.

Thanks -- Regards -- Andy

PS you may also want to try the latest ACPI patch from that same site, but
my guess is it will not solve your problem.
