Description Rick Johnson 2004-02-13 02:15:29 EST
Description of problem:
When ACPI is enabled, Dell Lattitude CPx laptops with battery 
inserted will shutdown when modules are loaded. This happens right 
after local disks are probed or mounted. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert Battery
2. Power on and boot with default options

Actual Results:  Laptop shuts down.

Expected Results:  Laptop should boot normally.

Additional info:

Removing the battery or booting with acpi=off option passed to kernel 
allows the laptop to boot. Once system passes module loading stage, 
reinserting the battery has no affect.

I got the same problem on my Dell Inspiron 8000 with 2.6.1-1.65, but
2.6.2-1.74 seems to have fixed it.  Please verify that it fixes the
problem on your Latitute as well and, if so, reopen this.
