Help with an "ACPI ERROR" at boot

Post by Modaljazz2018 » Fri Nov 09, 2018 9:23 pm

I noticed this ACPI error on boot. I am using MINT 19 Cinnamon. It might be issue with the computer cause I get the same error with a couple other distro's I use. When I boot up linux I press the "esc" key to watch the text go by so I can see if there is any problem. The bootup hangs on this ACPI error for about 20 seconds before booting resumes. Once booted into the OS it functions fine. I think this might have something to do with the very long boot time. Here is a bit of the error I copied using dmesg. I have no clue what any of this means! My MINT is on a 500G USB external drive.
