used laptops

I would like to appreciate the work of blog author that the person provided us with an extremely excellent information regarding the topic. I really learned something from this blog and started to contribute my ideas via commenting on this blog. Keep it up!

Since you seem to know about this Phoenix BIOS issue, can you please tell me how to avoid the PCI issue while using Linux?

I see this message

PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 7 of bridge 0000:00:04.0

and a few more during boot. Turns out, this in some way affects the VGA Enable line of my laptop. When I use linux on my laptop (when powered using battery), I cannot see anything on my screen.

If this is intended by the BIOS, I might have to approach ACER to replace the laptop or provide a non Phoenix BIOS firmware. I cannot use this laptop on the field for my project.( and 400 GBP is a lot for a student).


Will anyone read?

You should leave a comment on both of those sites to clear the matter out...

And while we're at it, shouldn't you guys hide email addresses from comments in this blog? Everyone can see my email now... Just a tip :)
