[Bug 739118] Re: Dell Inspiron 2650 (bios A13): keyboard and touchpad fail randomly


I wasn't able to boot the Ubuntu daily live image due to bug #1251816,
but I did try installing the Raring kernel (3.8.0-34) on my work's Dell
Inspiron 2650 running Lubuntu 12.04. Booting the 3.8 kernel, the
keyboard & trackpad worked every time! I probably rebooted it about 15
times. As far as I can tell, this issue is resolved, but I can only
assume the issue is still fixed in 3.11, as I cannot successfully boot
that kernel yet to test.
