Hello all, I did find a similar thread on this but the thread was too general and really did not seem to have enough information.
So I have a Dell Studio 1569 and I am running Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit. The problem I am having at this point is that the computer does not want to shutdown or restart. When I choose to shutdown, I get a message that says Will now halt and the computer just sits there. If you wait long enough, the kernel reports that it detected a CPU stall.
The same thing happens when I restart, except that it says Will now restart.
I have both the Ubuntu Kernel installed and the Liquorix kernel, both have this same issue. I have been searching, but to no avail. Help is appreciated I'm not sure if this heps at all, but I am using SELinux. The problem continued with and without it.

Help is appreciated.
