I bought a month ago a new G570. It looks great notebook accept for this problem. Fun never stops and it is really irritating. To be honest with you, the problem appear only at linux system. Not in windows. I have tried already two linux (ubuntu 11.10 and open suse 11) distributions and the problem is still there. If i wont find a solution soon i will try to sell my laptop and buy, perhaps a Dell one that support better linux.
