This is probaly an incompatilbility issue that can be fixed with BIOS updates or changes. This would be best ansered on superuser fourm or kali form. Just not here after the big update . Thanks.

Thank you for your interest in Kali but this bug report is not actionable.
We're sorry but we don't have the manpower to deal with hardware support problems.
Those problems need to be fixed in the upstream Linux kernel. We regularly import new kernel releases.
