You might try the acpi=off boot option. I have to use that with most Ubuntu
distros on my laptop until such time as I am able to replace the Nouveau
driver with the nVidia proprietary one because the former seems to choke on
the fact that I have SLI.

My failure mode is different, though: the screen alternates between reg,
green and blue colors.
