Hm, weird, you really shouldn't need it. I have an G450, I get the same
error, but no problems. mga_hal is the proprietary driver, and if you
want to be Saint in the Church of Emacs, you shouldn't have it... ;-)
So, I would suspect something else is wrong... Could you post the whole

things if it is large).
