Thread: Toshiba Satellite M305D S4830 no ACPI

  1. #1

    Default Toshiba Satellite M305D S4830 no ACPI

    Hi,

    I have the following problem with my Toshiba Satellite M305D S4830. I succeeded in installing OpenSuse11.1. The only way I could do it was by having the kernel with acpi=off. How can I make it work with ACPI on?

    You probably can't. acpi=off instructs the kernel to not use the acpi tables produced by the bios, but instead to use an alternate method of detecting the hardware. Surprisingly, problems with bios acpi tables are not at all uncommon. What is your concern?

    Hi Mingus,

    I had to run the kernel with the option acpi=off. When I do not choose this option the system halts while loading.
    I would like to have the acpi working, as at present I can not turn the machine off, unless I press the power button.

    Open a terminal and do:

    Code:
    su -
    shutdown -h now
    What happens?

    Hi Mingus,

    It happens the same as reported before. The system shutdowns but the computer remains energized and the screen on. In order to de-energize the computer it is necessary to press the power button.

    What happens when you try this:

    Code:
    shutdown -h -P now

    Hi Mingus,

    Still the same. The laptop remains energized. To turn it off I need to press the power button.

    I'm afraid I'm out of my depth at this point. Let me suggest you start a new thread in the Hardware forum with a title like "Laptop will not power off" and then explain that to boot requires acpi=off but results in shutdown not working properly. You will get better help that way. Good luck.

    Should have thought of this before . . . instead of acpi=off, try each of the following:

    Code:
    pci=acpi 
    
    acpi=noirq	
    
    acpi_irq_balance 	
    
    acpi_irq_nobalance

    Hi Mingus,

    Iĺl try your suggestion at the Hardware.

    I tryed pci=acpi and acpi=noirq

    I did not try the last two.

    Anyway, thanks for trying to help.
