It means that the ACPI implementation in your motherboard's BIOS/UEFI is faulty. Generally, it's not cause for concern. See:

Its strange because this error only appear when I boot with liquorix kernel with others (old kernels) like 3.13 ... the error not appear.

I use Lubuntu 14.04 maybe with other kernels this disappear, I already test some new distros and in some of these distros like Manjaro LXDE the error appears but in others not , so I thinking that this problem appear with some new kernels.

This system is recently.

I also comment this problem on Liquorix forum → http://techpatterns.com/forums/post-12567.html

I already update this BIOS - with the EZ Flash utility https://www.asus.com/pt/support/self-service/4/ I down the file and put in USB and then boot and enter in BIOS Im see in the menu the "tool" option and then there are a option inside to update by the USB file downloaded previously - but the problem is still here, so I hope that this problem can't affect the hardware because I cant do nothing more.

Thanks for your help.

I have 2 different Asus(Intel) motherboards that do the same thing with newer kernels. It's nothing to worry about and there is nothing you can do about it at this point.

Just to give you some background, as you probably know, ACPI is the power regulation code in your motherboard's BIOS/UEFI:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanc...ower_Interface

It's suppose to be a standard that any operating system can properly implement. However, in typical Microsoft fashion, MS operating systems do not follow or properly implement the ACPI standard. Instead, MS gives motherboard manufacturers their own improperly implemented ACPI code for inclusion in the motherboard BIOS/UEFI. The code runs fine with MS windows but all for other operating systems like linux there can be problems. Because of MS's market dominance, the faulty ACPI implementation from MS has become the de facto industry standard. As a result, linux and other non-MS operating systems have to reverse engineer the faulty ACPI implementation from MS. That's why you can see problems in linux with ACPI related functionality like suspend to ram, hibernate, etc.

Apparently, the ACPI related code in certain newer linux kernels has a problem with the typical BIOS/UEFI ACPI implementation on certain motherboards which is why we're getting those error messages. Even though I get those error messages at the beginning of the boot process, I've had no problems with suspend/resume or any other ACPI related issues. Here's another guy with the same problem so you are not alone:

https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comme..._installation/

The advice there was to not run in BIOS legacy mode by disabling UEFI but to run in UEFI mode instead with secure boot disabled. I haven't bothered with it myself since I have several operating systems already installed with BIOS legacy mode and I would have to reinstall everything if I wanted to switch to UEFI mode.

ACPI Error

I have installed kali linux 2017, and rolled back to install qbittorrent. While upgrading, laptop got stuck. So I restarted the machine, it is right now, not starting, following error is shown.

dev/sda7: clean, 355254/5488640 files, 3710073/21926912 blocks
[11.514535] nouveau 0000:03:00.0 DRM: pointer to TMDS table invalid

[15.136651] Bluetooth: hci0 command 0x1001 tx timeout


The posts are read, but the foolproof solution is not available.
1. Bios is updated
2. ACPI=off command given, after it is started. Post on stackexchange.
3. UEFI mode is already on.
Please suggest workable solution.

You should start a new thread. That error output indicates a probable problem with the nouveau driver which is the open source driver for nvidia based graphics card. Your problem has little to do with the issues raised in this thread.
