You can also try the 'acpi_irq_nobalance' kernel parameter as a boot option.

This seems to be something distro-specific, so I can't be sure.

How exactly can this be done in Ubuntu?

You'd have to add it to /boot/grub/menu.lst somewhere in there, can you post it.

Grub2 does not contain anything like /boot/grub/menu.lst

There is: sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

My file contains:

# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1280x1024-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=" splash vga=789"

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)

# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'

# Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries

# Uncomment to get a beep at grub start
#GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"

Where exactly would 'acpi_irq_nobalance' go?

I see, this is grub2, didn't know, it would probably have to be:


GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=" splash vga=789 acpi_irq_nobalance"

Thank you H_TeXMeX_H. I will make a note of it.

This seems to have done the trick:

sudo aptitude purge irqbalance

Editing the /etc/default/irqbalance file and disabling it there would also probably be effective.
