Report on MSI GX623X notebook + issues

Reported by: BoldosOneCS Owned by: eco
Priority: major Milestone: Release version 3.19
Component: ACPI PSD Version: 3.17
Keywords: Cc:


Installed Silver on MSI GX623X-026CZ notebook. The ACPI is partially working, generally the system is quite usable.

There are following (major) issues though: 1) ACPI is not able to detect the CPU type, Motherboard manufacturer & type, BIOS type and version. It detects Core2Duo (P7350) CPU as: family = Intel Pentium Pro/II/III/Celeron, AMD Athlon/Duron?, Cyrix M2, VIA C3 (6); (simple synth) = Intel Pentium III / Pentium III Xeon (Katmai), .25um which seems to be completely wrong. Strangely enough - when forcing /SMP /APIC - ACPI happily initializes both CPU cores (and seems to be pretty stable :))!

  • Uptime, AcpiBattery?, TmrTest? are working, Setgetstate (State set error rc=5) and Thermal (Status 0x0 0 - No error) are not! Even the reactor widget is not able to detect the CPU temperature :( On laptop these things mean no power/consumption scaling...
  • with ACPI without parameters the system shuts down. With /SMP /APIC the system is able to reboot, but hangs on shutdown. Under SMP also the "Shutdown" dialog is stating that the ACPI level is "0.00" - bug!
  • S3 Sleep in UNI mode: is working (I can tell by system reacting on my keyboard commands) but fails to reinit the video. /VBE produces hangs on wakeup. Tested >all< VBE save modes.
  • S3 Sleep in SMP mode: is not working, hang on wakeup, when /VBE used the video initializes but only "memory data" are splashed through out the screen and hang is following.
  • there seem to be some issues with NIC (GenMAC) init on boot. Happens only "sometimes", usually after a hard crash. At least two reboots necessary afterwards to init the GenMAC NIC properly. It also seems that without ACPI (in Legacy mode) it is just not possible to init the NIC at all! This also might be a problem of GenMAC, not directly related to ACPI.
  • versions 3,17 and 3.18PK seem to have the same effect on this notebook.

Thank you very much a keep up the good work :)
