acpi20091108 and nForce430 chipset report

Reported by: losepete Owned by: eco
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: ACPI PSD Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Having read the response to I installed files to my system and then applied the files from

Before booting I REM'd all USB drivers and changed the config.sys line to PSD=ACPI.PSD /SMP /APIC

Result: Boot stops - see attached 20091108_stopped.jpg; well, it will be attached when I next boot my system with USB drivers...

I then REM'd the uniaud drivers and booted successfully.

I ran the collectlogs.cmd and attach the output as acpi20091108-log-Asus-M2N.ziq

Milestone: Release version 3.17eCS 2.x
Version: 3.16

Having established that acpi20091108 will boot without USB and Uniaud I changed the config.sys line to PSD=ACPI.PSD /SMP /ACPI /CD /TMR /!NOD and Powered Off.

I left the system for about 2 minutes and powered On and tried booting.

Result: System fails to boot to a working Desktop. It stops at about the point where the Startup sound should play. The Desktop does not appear, the screen is flashing; there is no mouse or keyboard control.

I would guess that using a Uniaud build, files, that states it is specifically for Intel systems may be the cause.

I changed the uniaud files for those from uniaud-1.9.22 and tried booting again - Note: I always Power Off when testing acpi related configuration changes.

Result: As above without the flashing screen.

I changed the uniaud files to those from 1.9.2 and tried again.

Result: No change from 1.9.22

Not a good build of acpi.psd I guess as it will not work with the above config.sys line - which is usually the only way of getting acpi.psd at least partly working. I guess it may work without any uniaud drivers installed but it is not worth the effort to find out as I would not use the system that way.

Looks like v3.14 is still the best acpi to date for nForce4 and nForce430 chipsets...

Try APICOnly to acpi.cfg. For os4 kernel only. If success - I will do patch for IBM kernels too.

"os4 kernel only" means that I will not be testing this build of acpi - my experience of the os4 kernel is simply that it does not work as well as 14.104b

I have been reporting a problem with accessing UDF formatted dvd+rw discs when using the os4 kernel for what seems to be a long time - since I first started testing os4 kernels.

The latest builds of os4 kernels cause my system to reboot if I try to access a UDF formatted dvd+rw. As I use these discs for backup and often need to retrieve a file or several the os4 kernel is not the kernel to use.

How would you expect the use of a naff kernel to improve the acpi drivers? - which seem to have moved from almost usable at V3.14 to totally naff since.

As for your instruction "APICOnly to acpi.cfg.":

What do you mean? Where to put that line?

If it was mentioned in the docs it may help.
