Its a good idea to only post your question once in the forums and wait for a reply, also it is frowned upon to offer "services" in return for service. You might try to contact the user groups in Chicago for help that I posted in reply to your other question.

Offering Massages even if your need is genuine is likely to raise some eyebrows here.

Your thread was moved to a more technical forum, in this case Linux-Newbie.

The message means that the module was missing or failed to load (when hardware was removed and is no longer available). If you have upgraded your computer it's possible to get such one (when you have certain pieces of hardware replaces), also if you upgrade your system (software) - in case of improper version etc.

Have you made such an upgrade recently?

It may be also cause by something like improper shutdown. Sometimes files may be corrupted this way, when it happens to module file, you may get such an error.
