no, I don't think that that is the error... I will be more careful next 
time and write down the error, th only problem is that when it happens 
the computer restarts after a few seconds (mainly 'cause it happens on 
shutdown.. I think)

I start to notice a problem with ACPI as well.. the laptop doesn't shut 
down completely.. I get the message that says that the computer will be 
shutdown via ACPI, then the monitor get blank, but the laptop stays on 
and I have to press the power button for a few seconds to force the 

what should I do... burn the laptop or try to solve the issues? :-)
