Laptop: ASUS M51Ta
CPU: AMD Turion X2 Ultra (ZM-84)
System: Mandriva 2009,Fedora 10, OpenSuSE 11.1, Ubuntu 8.10 (tried all those)

Any of those system do not boot - neither in Live mode nor Install mode

Tried Fedora 10 with acpi=ht option on boot (similar to acpi=off)
System starts, BUT: no battery (despite it is present), no control over CPU frequency, CPU works on max. frequency and laptop heats enermously.
I guess problem is caused by ACPI.

Please help to overcome this problem.
All those distribution use kernel 2.6.27.x (different variants of it)

I need fast fix - as I got used to work from Linux, and have to write those message from Windows.
In case there is no immediate fix available to any of those distributions: are there any distros available which would work with ACPI with AMD Turion X2 Ultra (ZM-84) processor (AMD Puma platform)? Gentoo, Slack, any other?

I have enough disk space on new laptop (320GB HDD) to intall one (or few) more distributions.

Thanks a lot for your help!

I am not an expert.
There are people that use similar laptops. Perhaps you can send e-mail / questions to them.
Perhaps you can test kernel 2.6.28 or compile kernel with different settings (MTRR).
