View Full Version : Nvidia board on x64, random system freezes and crashes FIXED

3rd April 2007, 06:58 PM
I had a system using the Asus M2NPV-VM motherboard with the Nvidia chipset, nvidia 6150 video, and nvidia LAN. I was getting random freezes during network activity, or sometimes just for no reason at all and I would be forced to do a hard boot. I saw this error message during bootup:

Nvidia board detected. Ignoring ACPI timer override.
If you got timer trouble, try acpi_use_timer_override
And so I applied the
acpi_use_timer_override to the end of my bootup line in grub (leaving everything else the same), and that fixed all my problems. Just wanted to post this here in case someone runs into the same situation, hopefully they will find this thread instead of wasting hours as I did...
