Some older machines have buggy ACPI implementations which might be
related to your error. You might be able to shut it off in the BIOS
or I know there is parameter you can pass fedora core to shut off
support for it I just don't remember off the top of my head. Might
be worth a shot since you mention ACPI issues...
