I own the Acer Ferrari 4000 notebook and ever since I got it, it has been freezing up on me. It would freeze at different intervals. Sometimes no more than 47 mins, 1 hr 45 mins, 8 hrs or 1 day 17 mins. I using kernel-188.8.131.52-21.9-default. The errors that dmesg spits out are:
ACPI-0208: *** Warning: Error evaluating _BST ACPI-0352: *** Error: Looking up [Z00I] in namespace, AE_NOT_FOUND search_node ffff81003f845e40 start_node ffff81003f845e40 return_node 0000000000000000 ACPI-0446: *** Warning: [AE_NOT_CONFIGURED]: Could not resolve operands, AE_NOT_FOUND ACPI-1140: *** Error: Method execution failed [_SB_.BAT1._BST] (Node ffff81003f845cc0), AE_NOT_FOUND

I tried booting up w/ acpi=off and that did not work. It would hang and the last thing on the screen would say System BIOS May be broken or something like that. I tried acpi=noacpi and that booted cleanly and it still froze at random intervals.
Froze also means locks up. I cannot use the keyboard, mouse...nothing...I can kill the power by turning the power button on and off. I am running the latest BIOS Update.
Any help would be grateful.
I *think* someone from AMD posted a week or two ago & said this was a hardware problem, they had duplicated it & escalated it, bla bla bla. Might check the archives to be sure. HTH & all that ....
