Can you try quantal (12.10) or raring (13.04)? I am using a very similar notebook (A54C-NB91) I have used 12.10 and now using 13.04, both are very stable on it. –  GM-Script-Writer-62850 Apr 28 '13 at 12:57
    
Have you tried the new kernel quantal as well as the graphics from the hardware enablement stack? - wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack –  fossfreedom Apr 28 '13 at 13:21

I do see a lot of EDID related stuff in the dmesg output, can you update your BIOS? link and after you update make sure secure boot is disabled, that thing is nothing but trouble, If you have issues using your backlight after the update run this command (if you are still using the 3.2 or 3.5 kernel this is not what you are looking for)

sudo sed -i "s/quiet splash/quiet splash acpi_osi=\'\!Windows 2012\'/" /etc/default/grub;sudo update-grub;echo 'Now you need to reboot'
