    okay I have a Sony AR-390E and whenever I use quiet splash and 15% of the time without quiet. I have combed the Ubuntu forums to no avail. Just about ready to go back to 7.10. Can anyone help me before I have to backstep?

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand the problem. Can you describe it in more detail?

    yes, whenever booting with quiet splash enabled it will lock up on an acpi issue. I don't remember what error number it gave me but it does say the acpi timed out. It will not boot and freezes. I don't know quite what else to say. wow I guess I did forget to add the symptoms.

    boot/grub/menu.lst

    ## default num
    # Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0, and
    # the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.
    #
    # You can specify 'saved' instead of a number. In this case, the default entry
    # is the entry saved with the command 'savedefault'.
    # WARNING: If you are using dmraid do not use 'savedefault' or your
    # array will desync and will not let you boot your system.
    default 0

    ## timeout sec
    # Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default entry
    # (normally the first entry defined).
    timeout 10

    ## hiddenmenu
    # Hides the menu by default (press ESC to see the menu)
    #hiddenmenu
