[Solved]Can't reboot: Acer Aspire One Happy2

Hey guys,

I have install x86_64 arch on my netbook with Dwm and everything is working so far apart from being able to reboot.

I can shutdown with no problem but if I try to reboot, it will say rebooting system but screen goes blank and just hangs.

I have to hold down the power button to turn it off.

Has anyone got any ideas or the same netbook

Acer Aspire One Happy2
Intel Atom N570 1.66GHZ, 1MB L2 cache

Add reboot=bios to the kernel line in grub.cfg. If that doesn't work, try reboot=kbd. Once you have one that works, run dmidecode and post the "System Information" part, with that info a kernel patch can be written.

Keep reboot=kbd in menu.lst, until a kernel with that patch is released.
