Disabling APIC (in both the BIOS and the kernel) can also solve hard
lockups with nforce2 boards.  My A7N8X Deluxe used to be plagued by
this.  Recent kernels fix this problem too.  FWIW, I still run with
CPU disconnect off because enabling it results in an annoying, high
pitched whine on the sound output.
