That's been there since before I started using the NVidia drivers, so I'm pretty sure it's not the problem. My computer's fan is running fine and the system is not overheating. I can't figure out what's causing that error, though. It's flooding my dmesg logs.

I'm not sure off hand, but the HP site says that my PC (Pavilion a600n) has this motherboard:

Mb manufacturer name: ASUS A7V8X-LA
HP/Compaq name: Kelut-GL6E

BIOS version of 3.15
