It's not the cleanest approach, but if you cant find any other solution:
Back everything up and restore the config files to default states.

A quick google for your notebook showed that it IS working using archlinux
[1] references a french site with some configurations for your notebook.
You might wanna check this out too. [2]

In fact your notebook is even certified for ubuntu [3]

So it really looks like some config files are messed up...
(Or since it's arch, newer packages break things. You might wanna try
ubuntu from a usb drive just to be sure...)
