To correctly identify the drivers, we really need more details. Unless
someone else has a dv6110us, this probably means either getting the
system to a point where "pciconf -vl" works or extracting the PCI IDs
from the Windows hardware list.

Not a good sign. Exactly what happens is ACPI is enabled?

They definitely won't work - both are Intel chipsets and I suspect you
have an ATI chipset - try snd_atiixp
>(iii) Smp does crash everything
>(iv) Cannot reboot/shutdown except by pressing the on/off
Probably related to the lack of ACPI.

You have a Broadcom chipset. As Scot pointed out, you will need to
use NDIS with a Windows driver. I suspect the drivers he pointed you
to are 32-bit. If you're running an amd64 kernel, you will need a
Windows-64 driver - and they are rarer. AFAIK, HP don't support
Win64 so you probably won't find them on the HP site. Broadcom won't
support end-users - they expect you to go to your vendor for support.
The drivers I have originated from Toshiba.
>(vii) Power management crashes everything when enabled
Again, please provide details.
