Continuous Error Code in TTY consoles

I am new to UBUNTU/KUBUNTU, have checked the forums for this code but did not 
discover anyone with this issue.  When I switch from my virtual screen that 
is running KDE/GNOME desktop to a console TTY, I receive the following 
continuously running error code.

HDC: error code: 0x70 sense_key: 0x20 asc: 0x30 ascq: 0x00

The only thing I can determine is that HDC may refer to the CD/DVD drive.  The 
drive appears to function properly as I tested it by playing a DVD earlier.

I have KUBUNTU 6.06 -386 installed on an HP dv8000 AMD64 ML37 laptop.  Any 
help in isolating this code and troubleshooting would be greatly appreciated.
