I have a notebook a few months old. After a while I started getting the following message related to a ACPI BIOS error (bug) … when booting AlmaLinux9 and Linux started crashing randomly several times per day (it goes off/black screen and reboots):
sudo dmesg | grep Error show the error messages at boot (first two) and some additional ones:
[ 0.714096] ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Could not resolve symbol [_SB.PCI0.GP17.MP2], AE_NOT_FOUND (20211217/psargs-330)
[ 0.714116] ACPI Error: Aborting method _SB.GPIO._EVT due to previous error (AE_NOT_FOUND) (20211217/psparse-529)
[ 600.630368] ACPI Error: No handler for Region [VRTC] (00000000c34d1ece) [SystemCMOS] (20211217/evregion-130)
[ 600.630385] ACPI Error: Region SystemCMOS (ID=5) has no handler (20211217/exfldio-261)
[ 600.630392] ACPI Error: Aborting method _SB.PCI0.SBRG.EC._Q9A due to previous error (AE_NOT_EXIST) (20211217/psparse-529)
I updated the BIOS to the latest version but the problem remains. Can this be fixed?
