try turning your APM off. I believe you can do this by adding apm=off in the boot line in the boot loader. I think you do that like this:
when your bootloader loads up I think you press "e" for edit
if that doesn't work it probably says on the screen how to change/edit the boot lines. basicly you just want to put that line in the bootup and see if it solves your problem. if that works edit your lilo or grub conf file to make the change perminent until you find a better solution to fix it.
