This is a known bug (for ATI X200 chipset).

Work arounds

1.  pass the noapic option (thru grub in /boot/grub/menu.lst) to the
  kernel (this works for 2.6.11 to 2.6.15+ kernels)
  I am doing it on my MSI S270 Turion laptop

2. preferably, boot a recent kernel the 2.6.15 from debian/sid is ok,
  and passes the disable_timer_pin_1 option to the kernel. See
