'Dude', it may very well have to deal with who makes your motherboard and how it is supported in FreeBSD. Don't assume that since you have an AMD chipset you are unaffected and just because you don't have problems in one OS, doesn't mean that your problems will be universally unexistent in all OSes.

If and when you are asking a question hardware related, it is helpful if you provide information on this list as to what hardware you have, what version of FreeBSD you are running (uname -a does the trick), and some information as to what you have compiled into your kernel (linking to another site with your kernel conf is the best way to deal with that issue).

So, again... (and a bit more defined/directed this time in my question, I admit), do you know who makes your motherboard and also are you sure that the BIOS is completely updated?
