Take a look at what "dmesg" tells you about these errors, should be mentioned there somewhere.
Another place to keep an eye on is "/var/log/messages" which you can follow using : 'tail -f /var/log/messages' as command.
Another thing is to check system services (system settings -> advanced -> system services) and look if 'laptop-mode" is running. If it is, stop it and see if these error messages go away. If so, disable that service at boot time ........ your laptop will run fine without it. It's only needed/used for power saving by spinning down a drive that hasn't been accessed for a while.
