Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 853884
Touchpad randomly freezing out
Last modified: 2013-06-17 14:29:07 EDT
Description of problem:
My laptop Hp Probook 5415s since kernel 3.4.6 randomly freezing out the touchpad. I have tried to find the source of the reason, and found strange lines in messages.log.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
current stable kernel 3.5.2-3.fc17-x86_64 #1 SMP
It randomly appears by self, sometimes multiple times in series
Steps to Reproduce:
I don't know. I would like to cooperate, but how? What should I add to this report?
I have noticed these lines in messages.log:
[Firmware Bug]: cpu 1, try to use APIC500 (LVT offset 0) for vector 0x400, but the register is already in use for vector 0xf9 on another cpu
perf: IBS APIC setup failed on cpu #1
Possibly this is the cause of the freeze?
The problem always appears when the machine is bit longer idle, or the cursor moves lot tiny (drawing, corrections).
Are you still seeing this with the 3.9.4 kernel in updates-testing?
