[Bug 1055419] Re: [Sony Corporation VGN-SR29XN_S] suspend/resume failure


Gavin Panella, as per http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/product/VGN-
SR29XN_S/updates an update is available for your BIOS (R1130Y1). If you
update to this following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BiosUpdate ,
does it change anything?

If not, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful.

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Thank you for your understanding.
