Since yesterday evening I've unpluged my IntelliMouse (a 10 year old model...). But I've still got one hang up (couldn't create a bug record, I'll try to catch the next one)
Disabling the internal touch pad seems like a not so good idea to me. (And if I'd try that: how? Would a xorg.con entry be sufficient?)

I tried that (the kernel parameter setting) but it didn't change anything as the kernel couldn't find a good setup. Other informations on the net showed that the nVidia driver ignores that anyway...

No. I couldn't find one. I'll wait for ubuntu 11.04 and do an early upgrade.

Just now the laptop had again a hang up:
First the screen flickered repeatedly black (allways for a fraction of a second). During that time I created the *.1.* bug report in the current X session.
And as I wanted to write this posting the screen turned black and no interaction was possible anymore. That report was generated via ssh then.

Both reports were on the plain laptop, no external mouse was attached.

Now I've changed the kernel parameters to disable HPET and optimize MTRR. Let's see how the bug reports are looking then...

So this time the next crash came quite soon. Report attached. (As written above: MTRR optimization activated, HPET disabled).

Next try will have PowerMizer disabled...

Now my system is running fine since 10 days.

The current settings are:
Linux kernel / GRUB:
Code:
enable_mtrr_cleanup mtrr_spare_reg_nr=1 hpet=disable
xorg.conf:
Code:
Option  "RegistryDwords" "PowerMizerEnable=0x1; PerfLevelSrc=0x2222; PowerMizerLevel=0x2; PowerMizerDefault=0x2; PowerMizerDefaultAC=0x2"
The MicroSoft IntelliMouse is still atached.

Although I'm happy that the system seems to be stable now, I'm not so happy about the disabled PowerMizer as it's limiting my graphics performance now. (And if I set it to maximum power the fan would blow my ear of, so that's also not an option as most of the time the limited performance is fine for me).

=> Please fix this strange bug
(And I'm sorry that I didn't find a way to reliably reproduce it - except to work on that machine for a few hours interactively)
