Yes, it is the way you described. My apologies. I was afraid it were
some hardware conflict I (newbie) couldn't manage.

Disabling power management has been what I did first thing, this I've 
learnt from this list. So, I've called the service for hardware control,

tested the installation of nt the day before.
