"Via Padlock not detected" stops Fedora from booting

Hello all, I've been using Fedora Core 4 for a couple months now without problems, but I just ran into one. Last night Alsaplayer quit working out of the blue, and I couldn't shut it down. I turned off my computer for the night, and this morning it would boot.

After uncompressing the Kernel (Ok) I get the following messages:

Padlock: Via Padlock not detected

mknod: failed to create /dev/null/17
mknod: failed to create /dev/zero/17

and the computer hangs.

Is this fixable?
Thanks for any help,

A search for this phrase on Google says that this is some kind of in-processor encryption engine. I don't know exactly why your Linux thinks that it's supposed to be expecting such a thing ...
