ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Could not resolve symbol [ TZ.ETMD], AE_NOT_FOUND (20220313/psargs-330)
I started seeing this error on my work laptop, a DELL XPS 17 9710:
It would appear when I was attempting to power off or restart, and would freeze at this point. I would then need to press and hold the power button to power off the laptop.
When starting Linux, I wouldn’t get the graphical login, but only the terminal prompt.
My current kernel is
Linux 5.19.0-38-generic, but my Grub menu, also
Linux 5.15.0-25-generic available.
I was able to boot into the graphical login by selecting the
Linux 5.15.0-25-generic kernel from the grub menu. Once booted with this
kernel, I’m now able to reboot and power off as normal.
Now I just need to set grub to use that kernel by default.
Adding the following lines to
/etc/default/grub will cause grub to
save the selection each time, and default to that on the next boot.
Remove or comment out any other lines, such as
sudo update-grub, then reboot to test it out.
