    Question apic errors


    Hi,

    I keep getting these msgs on console:

    APIC error on CPU0: 00(40)
    APIC error on CPU0: 00(40)
    APIC error on CPU0: 08(08 )
    APIC error on CPU0: 08(08 )

    how do i interpret these error bits?
    in doc , i find
    /* Here is what the APIC error bits mean:
    0: Send CS error
    1: Receive CS error
    2: Send accept error
    3: Receive accept error
    4: Reserved
    5: Send illegal vector
    6: Received illegal vector
    7: Illegal register address
    */

    but i got no clue what the code 00(40) means with respect to above error bits in apic.c

    can anyone help plz?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    The APIC is the Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller circuitry on the motherboard. If it is giving errors, you may have a failing motherboard. Run the vendor/manufacturer systems diagnostic tools to see what is going on.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
