Just disable it when loading the kernel to see if it makes any
difference. On a desktop it's not really a big deal running without
ACPI.

Yes.. I mean disabling ACPI in the kernel's device.hints file, I don't
think you can turn it off just by using the bios.

My system has a problem with shared interrupts all of a sudden being
lost when ACPI is enabled. If you have any devices that share an
interrupt then this may be what's happening. (You can see the IRQ table
using 'vmstat -i')
