I upgrade to Ubuntu 13.04 and some times appears in boot display a message:

Disabling IRQ #16

When this message appears, I must reboot because the mouse turns very slow and doesn't response correctly. I suppose that is a IRQ Conflict problem, but how I can resolve it?

SO: 3.8.0-19-generic #29-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 17 18:16:28 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Motherboard: GA-H77M-D3H
Ethernet: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8169 PCI Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 10)

NEWs:

I removed RTL8169 external ethernet to simplify error possibilities. Without this card, I had tested different BIOS configurations and the result is:

  1. Disabling IRQ #16 appears when I enable "Intel Virtualization Technology" in the bios.
  2. When I disable the integrated ethernet in the BIOS, motherboard is freeze in the reboot, when show Gigabyte's logo. I must remove battery for two minutes to restore the BIOS.

Other possible symptom i found in dmesg output:

News: I tested with latest BIOs. Error persists, but minus errors appears in dmesg. For example, *BAD*gran_size has been disappear. A curiosity: Firmwares files in GIGAByte web are .exe !!!! and the last BIOS image is 10 months old beta version!

Add the contents of /proc/interrupts to your question. –  psusi Apr 28 '13 at 18:14
    
@psusi I add new information. /proc/interrupts and dmesg output –  angelcervera Apr 29 '13 at 10:57

Sounds like a buggy bios; check if there's an update. –  psusi Apr 29 '13 at 13:33
