rafaeljcg: thanks for the link, it was full of all sorts of useful
information and I have bookmarked it accordingly.

I found another issue which I suspect may possibly be a result of this
on-going bug, however, since I am not sure I was hoping I could get some
insight from a few guys frequenting this but report. Since alot of you
with this problem seem to have the same chipset (nvidia), I'd like to
ask if any of you also have problem with your consoles.

CTRL-ALT-F1 -> F6 have not worked for me since I installed Intrepid
beta. It actually seems to be erratic, while diagnosing the problem I
had a few consoles open, "tail -f "-ing the following log files:


I could not find anything refecting any sort of error when switching to
console, however during repeated tests, the console would randomly start
working, and then stop working. After a while my keyboard sort-of went
hay-wire out requiring a reboot.

It seems to me that this apci/lapic issue is the only one plaguing these
laptops and I am curious as to whether or not it might be related. I'd
be more than happy to provide any alternative log files and information
anyone requires, or a link to another bug or perhaps a general "you did
<this> wrong, or forgot to do <that>". I am fresh out of Ideas.

My laptop is:

HP Pavilion dv9610us (add that to the list of problematic systems if it isn't already (dv9000 series))
gfxcard: nVidia GeForce 7150M @ 1440x900
cpu: AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-58 @ 1.9GHZ
