Hi, I tried to install 5.3 on my HP/Compaq nx9105 ant saw the same symptoms as David Johnson.

I also tried your 1), 2) and 3) options without success (immediate shutdown).


Seems to be a widely suffered ACPI issue...
Have you tried different choices from the boot menu?
1) booting with ACPI disabled
2) safe mode
3) with verbose kernel logging
Could you tell us if
1) a choice from above would help you to boot
2) the last messages with verbose logging enabled (well, if you'd manage to see them)
