 +===== Notes =====
 +==== ACPI ====
 +This laptop freezes when switching to battery mode or booting the system with just the battery. As somewhat of a fix you need to use the **nolapic** boot option, this will allow you to use the battery but will also disable one of the cores on the processor.
 +As root, edit your /​boot/​grub/​menu.lst file with your favourite text editor and append **nolapic** to the end of your kernel line. It should look something like this:
 +<​code>​title Ubuntu 8.10, kernel 2.6.27-11-generic
 +uuid d6152ffd-edd6-4946-a5bb-cb7ecfb9699a
 +kernel /​vmlinuz-2.6.27-11-generic root=/​dev/​sda1 ro quiet splash nolapic
 +initrd /​initrd.img-2.6.27-11-generic
 +==== Graphics ====
 +For best results you should install the proprietary ATI drivers. See the guides section on this site for installation instructions.
 +===== Summary =====
 +The Asus F5V does not work well at all with Linux and should be avoided.
