The errors appear to start the moment the proprietary Nvidia driver is running.
With that driver loaded we can't really debug it, only Nvidia have that code and
can do so. If you can duplicate it without the Nvidia driver loaded I am still
I am trying this tip :
Try the kernel parameter pnpacpi=off
I finally got around to trying "pnpaci=off". It did not resolve the issue.
No reply re testing without Nvidia binary module so closing, please re-open
without that driver in use or take it up with Nvidia as they have our source but
we don't have theirs.
