Could you let me know the output of 'cat /proc/interrupts'?

Then try booting the system again, entering 'pcifix' at the boot: prompt.

This might fix it. If it does, please use the 'ytheleus feedback'
command to send a hardware report.

If not, post again or mail me directly and I'll help you debug further.
