I am not sure if my observations on my "Emachine 625" - which is a
cheap version of some Acer
procuct - has anything to do with your problem.

On my laptop, the _touchpad_ froze.  The warrant-period was still
valid, and I could hand it in
for repair..  The workshop claimed that they had to change 1) the
controller, 2) the touchpad,
and finally 3) the motherboard to get the thing running.

Your problem _might_ be some race-condition in the hardware. Perhaps
certain combinations
of some series numbers.

I do not think that my story helps a lot.  I was never a hardware man,
so I could not give
you any advice on how to cope with mixed hardware/software problems.

Good luck with the problem.
