I recovered an old laptop (HP compaq nx5000). It worked with Ubuntu Server 8.04 very good a lot years ago. I'm trying install Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 & 10.04, but the laptop freezes on the first 15 minutes.
I reinstalled Windows XP and the laptop works perfect, without freezes. I think is a kernel issue. I read this great documentation and this, but I'm little lost with it. Which parameter could be the issue?
Thanks in advance!
Edition: Fixed!! Just add acpi=off on the kernel boot ;) + info about it.
