Thread: problems with asus laptop

  1. #1

    Question problems with asus laptop

    I have a Ausu laptop with some issues ...

    Currently the only way that I can run on this laptop is to have the kernel switch
    Code:
     acpi=off
    That makes the laptop usable but I then have no blue tooth, screen dimming, battery monitoring, ect...

    What can I do to fix this or am i doomed?
    what would you need to help me fix this ?

    What will happen now?

    I was using the desktop 32bit kernel so I figured that I would try the PAE kernel without the acpi=off switch ... and the results are a bit better... but it's still unusable without the switch

    What will happen now?

    Hi
    What if you boot to runlevel 3 with acpi on, then login as your user and run top. Then press ctrl+alt+F2 login as root and run;
    Code:
    init 5 && exit
    Now flip back to the top session, press ctrl+alt+F1, what is hogging the processes?

    Which DE are you using?

    Hi
    What GPU is in that system? What happens if you disable the desktop effects in both DE's?

    if you use yast to install the kernel source, there will be installed on
    your hard drive at
    file:///usr/src/linux/Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt a document
    which lays out several acpi switches between either on or off, like:

    acpi= force OR noirq OR strict OR rsdt OR copy_dsdt OR

    acpi_apic_instance= 0 OR 1 OR 2

    acpi_backlight= vendor OR video

    and many many many more.....i've not been brave enough, nor found enough
    patience, but there _may_ be some smiles in that long list....

    but, before you experiment i'd advise you to do a lot of google searches
    AND read my sig caveat..

    i'd suggest if you have not yet, do a google with a string kinda like
    this: linux Asus [model number] acpi [one word problems you are having]

    by the way, what ARE the problems you are having without using the off
    switch...maybe we could help you with your real problem, instead of
    trying to tune a solution...there may be another, and better solution!

    Hi
    Leave the acpi on and just disable the desktop effects...

    A google on the system along with acpi may glean some options to try.
