[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: linux-image-2.6-amd64
Version: 2.6.32+28
Severity: important

I have a 10 days fresh squeeze installation on an ext4 partition. If I enable
the Cool n Quit function in the BIOS the system reboots after startup.
Sometimes while starting gnome, sometimes some seconds later, but always a blck
screen and a reboot and reproducable.
After disabling Cool n Quit in the BIOS I can startup normally. (AMD Live! is
enabled)
Unfortunately I could not find any log files (syslog, kern.log, dmesg are
empty), but tell me where I can find more information I will attach it later.
After  the first tries without nvidia-drivers, I installed nvidia-glx but this
helped only sometimes. But with the nvidia driver I switched to TTY1
(CTRL+ALT+1) while gnome starts up and then I got a kernel stacktrace instead
of a reboot.

Additional system info:
I have no fans in my system. Its a passive cooled system.
Perhaps the kernel tries to adjust a fan ....

I looked and found several other reports like this.  The kernel reports
a processor exception that seems to mean that some code in the
'powernow-k8' driver used an invalid pointer, but the code at that
location does not use a pointer.  This implies that the processor
malfunctioned after its power-saving state was adjusted.

There is a known bug in some Athlon processors (erratum 311) that may
cause this and which required a BIOS update to work around it, but it is
not supposed to affect the Athlon 64 X2.

Since power-saving features do seem to depend partly on the BIOS, please
check that the BIOS is up-to-date.

No, the kernel does not do that.

This seems to be a fault in the BIOS or the hardware configuration, and
I have had no response to my previous query.
