hwclock hang

Post by brcisna » 2012/01/12 01:05:04

Hello All,

Centos 6.2 2.6.32-220.2.1.i686.el6 32-bit
(LiveDVD install.)
Toshiba Satelitte L455D

On reboot or shutdown,this laptop hangs at "Synching hardware clock with system time". It will never go past this point.
Have to do a hard power off.
I checked and set the BIOS time/date to correct time to see if this may help.Didnt help.
When I do an hwclock -r nothing is ever shown.
If I do an hwclock --debug there is never any output.
I tried entering acpi=off appended to the kernel and this didnt make any difference.
Anyone have any ideas to try?

Thank You,

How are you doing that testing if it won't boot? From the LiveDVD?

I'd try an install from normal installation media. Seems you have nothing to lose.
