    Lightbulb Ubuntu freezes on battery Asus x50v/F5V

    Hello
    I had a problem with my Asus x50v.
    It was freezing on Ubuntu when I plugged off the wire cord, when it had to use battery.
    I just flashed/upgraded my BIOS.
    The BIOS version was 212, and I upgraded to 216 (from Asus website: DOWNLOADS> NOTEBOOK> F5> F5V). Because I have also Vista installed on my laptop too, I used WinFlash, but offcourse there is other way to do this if you don't have Vista on it.
    Now it's working good.
    Good luck!
    ps.: excuse me for my not so good english.

    Hy - got the same problem with my x50v !! Since Ubuntu 7.04.

    Freezes on startup when in batterie-mode, freezes when plug out ac connection!

    What I did was: open the "/boot/grub/menu.lst" and add "nolapic" !

    open terminal, type: sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

    This didn't really fix it, but it works. Prob is, that with this option only one core is running, but i can use the laptop.

    should look like this:
    ...
    title
    Ubuntu 8.10, kernel 2.6.27-11-generic
    uuid d5d33eb7-8569-4996-9b69-7e91f64c5838
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-11-generic root=UUID=d5d33eb7-8569-4996-9b69-7e91f64c5838 ro quiet splash nolapic
    initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.27-11-generic
    quiet
    ....

    Hope I could help u !
