Kernel Error message issue

I am in Fedora 10 class in college and have Linux loaded to the system here. My issue is that every time i boot the system and the GUI loads I get a window in the bottom right of the screen saying "Kernel error". I have tried doing both a recovery and an update of the OS to fix the issue. Neither has worked. What makes this all the more odd is that even though I am getting this error everything seems to be running fine, I am able to use firefox as well as terminal windows and word processing software as well.

Does anyone have a recommended fix to this issue? Its not so much that it is causing me usability issues yet, rather its mostly just annoying me.

PS. I will be posting a log of the exact issue when I reboot this system.
