Error in Toshiba L650 11f with recent kernels


Hi!
I bought a Toshiba L650 11f laptop about a month ago. when i tried to install ubuntu 10.04, i couldn't run it from livecd. After choose to run the system from cd, i got this screen: http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/9123/1210102006.jpg. Then, I managed to install ubuntu 9.10 and to successfully upgrade to 10.04. The problem is that only the kernel 2.6.31-22 works, anyone more recent gives out the same error message. I've upgraded to ubuntu 10.10 and the situation is the same. How can I fix it to run recent kernels?

that screen is a kernel panic and it probably means there is something about your hardware that ubuntu doesnt agree with. Could you post your system specs?

probably the hardware you are using- something seems to be incompatible between your hardware and the ubuntu kernel which is causing the problem. so cpu, video card, pci cards and the output of lspci

ps. this guy is having the same problem- it seems to be an issue with a lot of toshiba laptops-

Hello, I have L650D-11D and I have the same problem. I tried anything like acpi=off, acpi=copy_dsdt, noapic in numerous combination and nothing works in my case. It always freezes on early boot stages with different error messages. Any tips very appreciated

You can try to install an old distro, like ubuntu 9.10, and then upgrade to the newer version but still use the kernel from the old one. It worked for me.. It's not good, but is better than windows.

yes I already figured that it is working with debian stable. I upgraded it to testing and kept the old 2.6.26 kernel and is working great
