dmesg - "Hardware Error: Machine Check Events Logged"


Hello,
I've noticed some strange/worrying messages in dmesg on my reasonably brand new toshiba z830 laptop.

dmesg shows the following CPU messages (repeated a lot)
Code:
[ 3663.151568] CPU2: Package power limit notification (total events = 2681)
[ 3663.151573] CPU3: Package power limit notification (total events = 2681)
[ 3663.151579] CPU1: Package power limit notification (total events = 2681)
[ 3663.151584] CPU0: Package power limit notification (total events = 2680)
[ 3663.151827] CPU1: Package power limit normal
[ 3663.151830] CPU2: Package power limit normal
[ 3663.151834] CPU0: Package power limit normal
[ 3663.151837] CPU3: Package power limit normal
...
[Hardware Error]: Machine check events logged
My systems working fine, no hangups or anything. I've googled around and there are a few similar bug reports, but no resolutions.

Does anyone have any experience with this message?

I saw that, but wasn't really sure how to interpret it. There's a year old patch which masks the error output, caused by BIOS being configured incorrectly?

Is this something I should just ignore?

I think so.
It's not a hardware error and that kernelpatch just removed those messages.

Many users saw those messages, none reported problems.
So, don't worry...

Installing a newer kernel or upgrading your bios would probably 'cure' it.
But there's no need to...
