    Specs:

    Intel Core 2 Duo T7100 (1.80GHz)
    Chipset Intel 965GM
    2GB DDR2 Ram
    S-ATA Hard Disk Drive

    have you got a card reader? I've got a card reader in my philips x56. i think that's the problem. i'm trying to find a way to disable it.

    There's a built-in Ricoh R5C822 5-in-1 car reader, but I don't think thats the problem

    The only way I can figure out on how to boot the system, is by using the "nohotplug" option, but then the usb/video/sound/network etc. doesn't work.

    My guess is that some sort off hardware chip is too new and not supported by the current linux kernel, probably the only option is to wait for a new kernel and hope that it supports whatever is wrong with these laptops.

    Although if someone out there can help us out that would be great

    why not compile a newer kernel?

    so we can see wich device gives problems

    On the Acer Aspire 5720 I booted with nohotplug and then ran these commands:

    Code:
    /sbin/udevd --daemon --debug-trace --verbose log_priority=debug
    /sbin/udevtrigger
    Then the hangup happens on this device:

    Code:
    pci:v00008086d00002A00sv00001025sd0000011Ebc06sc00i00
    After that I rebooted and ran

    /sbin/modprobe -v -n pci:v00008086d00002A00sv00001025sd0000011Ebc06sc00 i00

    to see what that device is and it happens to be

    /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/kernel/drivers/char/agp/intel-agp.ko

    What next?
