I installed the newest Linux mint on My BTO W271EU laptop. All Works well, for a couple of minutes.
Then the system beeps start. Really loud and continuously. Other symptoms are a flashing caps Lock and num Lock light. After a few minutes the PC shuts down. Without warning.
This occurs after 5 minutes. Sometimes after An hour An sometimes I can use My laptop for Days without It happening.
I already disabled the pcspkr. And added It To the blacklist (as found on mighty Google). But that doesn't work.
I also noticed that when the Laptop starte beeping and shut it self down. The beeping also occurs on startup. Once the kernel is loaded it starts beeping continiously. Again untill it shuts itself down.
I have the problem with power cord plugged in and plugged out.
