Weird. Do you mean that you changed some setting in the BIOS to fix
this, or that you applied a BIOS update? Is there somewhere we can
read about the firmware update (e.g., a BIOS changelog) to see if
there is anything Linux could or should be doing to avoid similar
problems in the future?
Thanks for the update.
