The computer freezes when i shutdown. I have tried the ACPI options acpi=off and acpi=force but they don't work.

The computer is a MSI U130. The only way to shutdown is by long pressing the power button. It is running Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.10.

Wifi: RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe


Finally fixed it it was a problem with the wifi driver all I had to do is this:

Open /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (as root) and add at the end:

blacklist rt2800pci

The problem has that there was a wrong driver loaded.

  • How did you arrive at this conclusion??
