"BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0!" while installing 7.04 Ubuntu on Clevo m590k

Currently running a Sager 5950 Laptop (Model is Clevo m590k, so this is true for Alienware mALX, Envy W:201, as well as almost every 19" laptop)

System Core
Motherboard Sager 5950 19 inch w/ DVDRW
CPU Turion MT-44 (2.4ghz 1meg cache 25watt processor)
Ram 2 gigs of OCZ DDR1 400
Sound Card Onboard Sound
Hard Drive 100gig Hitachi 7200rpm 8meg cache HD
CD / DVD Stock DVD/CDRW Combo
Accessories 802.11g/Bluetooth Internal Mini-PCI for 5950 (I have tuned on the Wireless)
Chipset: nforce4
Graphics Cards: 2x 7900GTX GO 512mb each

This happens on:
Ubuntu 7.04 x64AMD FINAL

On initial CD insert, I get the BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0 after going to "start install ubuntu" (option at top)
I removed splash hiding and I find this!

Loading ACPI...

(Multiple Programs listed)
Loading Gnome Display Manager...
(162.788286) BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0!

Please feel free to e-mail me for anymore questions. I am not sure how to dump any of the files as this is my first install of linux. Well attempted install. I ran a validation check and found no problems.

Does anyone have any clue?
