I bought a notebook ACER model Aspire E 15 (E5-511-C7NE). The default OS was windows 8.1, I have formatted it and installed Ubuntu 15.04. If ACPI is ON I receive the message:

ACPI PCC probe failed.
starting version 219
dw_dmac INTL9C60:00: invalid resource

The fans stay crazy and linux never starts.

I did a test: I turned off ACPI and it work fine, but something stopped working:

  • I can't reboot.
  • I can't shutdown.

I tried running from terminal shutdown -h 0, it tried shutting down, the screen was down and stay total black, however the computer stayed ON.

I found others post about it more nothing solve my problem.

I have tested the commands using root access.

  • ACPI handles the physical shutdown/reboot operations, without it the laptop just halts. – aastefanov Jul 14 '15 at 0:17

I'm having similar issues with my Acer... In my searching, I found suggestions to blacklist some drivers. In particular, dw_mac and dw_mac_core. Try this...

echo "blacklist dw_dmac" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

echo "blacklist dw_dmac_core" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

I suggest this because of the "dw_mac... invalid resource" result when ACPI is on. It is also worth noting that this didn't help me, but I also never had that error.
