Hangs at udev...kind of

I'm running Fedora 9 with no problems for over a month now and have only had to reboot a few times after kernel updates and what not. After upgrading from to on my dv6809wm laptop, the boot process hangs at udev. However, this only happens if it is unplugged and if I plug it in once it hits this point the process resumes. I have tried some things recommended elsewhere with no luck. These include:
disabling rhgb
removing the wireless driver
When I boot the kernel it load fine. The other notable problem is, when resuming from suspend with either kernel I only get a blank screen. It doesn't help to switch virtual terminals. If I boot the old kernel into init 3 then suspend and resume the system does respond to pushing the power button by shutting down.

OK, I ended up just downgrading to a more familiar experience. Just kidding. I did a yum remove kernel- and then rebooted to the previous kernel and reinstalled my drivers. Everything works great. I'll just have to wait til this is fixed. It seems like there are a couple other folks with the same problem. I hope this helps.
