Acer Aspire 7720-6902 + Mandriva 2009: APIC error on CPU0: 40(40)


I installed Mandriva 2009 on an Acer Aspire 7720-6902 (a Core 2 Duo T5550). It works almost perfectly, except for one thing.

In dmesg, I get a stream of "APIC error on CPU0: 40(40)" messages. They seem to have no effect on the system operation, however. They're annoying and that's it.

Still I would like to fix that. Any clues?

With openSUSE 11.0 I had no problems.

What BIOS version are you running. I know I had this same problem running Ubuntu 8.04 and it was fixed as soon as I updated the BIOS to 1.45.
