Had similar problems with an acer F1000 with bge0
(which processor wise is a turion X2 proc)

did you try *with* SMP and *without* APIC_IO ?

that seemed to fix my bge lockups.

havent tried sound, or similarly have not been able to get the hdd
in non PATA compatibility. NATA didn't work for me but I've not yet
been able to issue a coherent investigation report (or try -HEAD)..
it might be worth a shot for you.

(for NATA, dig around on the wiki, there is something about what is needed)

not too worried on this because 'ACPI idle hook not enabled for SMP'..

my laptop is a work in progress.. but as long as theres power its ok :)

good luck
