    Question Asus Laptop only boots with acpi=off

    Hi all,

    I'm currently working with Ubuntu but in GRUB i have to set it to boot with acpi=off. At first I didnt care a lot, but I noticed my battery indicator does not work for example. (Which is logical because the ACPI takes care of the powermanagement).
    Is there a way to 'diagnose' the problem more, or to just disable certain 'parts' of the acpi instead of the whole bunch?

    I saw two other people expericend the same problem (

    I tried the suggestions in: but that didn't work out.
    I cannot boot with these command line because then the splash screen stays visible:
    linux    /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-11-generic root=UUID=32939def-1f4a-4134-9b56-bed2319a9216 ro  nosplash --verbose text
    and when I add
    to this line, it boots into text mode.


    I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 with kernel 2.6.38-11
