As a matter of fact, as long as you’re using the acpi=noirq parameter, the nvidia gpu will not work as it doesn’t get an irq (alongside many other devices).
When you remove it, what’s the last lines of the kernel messages displayed (maybe take a photo)?
and attach that.
I have been busy with work over the past couple of days and unable to continue testing this issuse. But I managed to get some testing in this morning and tried a few other acpi related parameters as shown in the ubuntu wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingACPI
I managed to get the machine to get to the desktop with the “noapic” kernel parameter.
It seems as if the the laptop is working now, and I can launch the nvidia xorg server setting application.
I ran a few benchmarks and noticed the GPU was only running at 260Mhz under a blender benchmark load, is this normal for this?
