Comment 61 for bug 43745

I've been using Dapper on a Dell Inspiron 6400 for about a month and didn't experience this problem so far. I'm using BIOS Rev A08.

Just in case, some time ago a Dell tech support guy told me how to reset the BIOS while we were trying to solve a thermal problem (BTW, the fix was to upgrade the BIOS from rev 06 to 08). I don't clearly remember the process but I think it was the following one:

* Extract the battery
* Unplug the power cord
* Keep the power button pressed for approx 2 minutes

Did you try upgrading the BIOS?

I will post the hwclock output later because I have the laptop at home. Please let me know if I can help with anything else before I upgrade to Edgy Eft.

Best regards,

Esteban
