Exclamation A question about ACPI - errors and exceptions.

I have a question I would very, very much appreciate help with. Every distribution I've installed so far has this problem. The only time it has been very, very annoying or disturbing is when I've had Fedora or another similar (like BLAG) installed. I get three ACPI error and exception messages, and they repeat. When I used anything but Fedora/BLAG, it is not even worth worrying about the amount, it's just here and there, a handful of times a day, basically. When I use Fedora or BLAG, it's massive amounts of these errors. I mean constantly. They flood my logs, over and over and over. I get:

Jul 19 12:34:52 home kernel: [ 9243.041115] ACPI Error (psargs-0358): [\_TZ_.THRM] Namespace lookup failure, AE_NOT_FOUND
Jul 19 12:34:52 home kernel: [ 9243.041124] ACPI Error (psparse-0524): Method parse/execution failed [\_GPE._L1C] (Node f6c13450), AE_NOT_FOUND
Jul 19 12:34:52 home kernel: [ 9243.041156] ACPI Exception (evgpe-0571): AE_NOT_FOUND, while evaluating GPE method [_L1C] [20080926]

Like I said, not bad really unless I'm using Fedora, BLAG, I don't know what else. I know when I paid attention using Fedora, these messages don't show up when the fan is running, then as soon as it stops they flood again. With Fedora, I mean thousands and thousands ... I know that in a matter of hours after I booted my computer before, I had around 150,000 lines in messages, for instance, and it was this.

If anyone can help with this at all, I'd very much appreciate it. I have googled and searched for a long time, and can't find any help at all with this.
I'm using an HP a1050y desktop (customized), with Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family, two HyperThreaded Intel Pentium 4 3.4 GHz processors, 1 GB RAM.

I am not precisely sure to where to post this, so I posted it here. By all means, move it to the proper forum.

You could try adding a couple of parameters to your boot command.

acpi=off noapic

Naturally this will have side effects. For example when you shut down the computer Linux will not be able to turn off the power.

I think I would first try to find an upgrade for the motherboard chips.

I completely forgot to mention that ...
I've tried the noacpi and acpi=off boot options and I received the same errors ... I have no idea, but is that possibly why? I tried them separately?

Also, when using Ubuntu (I don't know what else), my mouse stopped working.
