I'm getting the following error or warning in dmesg, but I'm not sure if its a problem. Occassionally my monitor and keyboard lock up but I'm not sure if that's related (I'm running a vga tube and ps2 keytronic keyboard). Anyway here's the output and machine info, any insight would be appreciated:

      Code:

[   22.164947] NVRM: Your system is not currently configured to drive a VGA console
[   22.164951] NVRM: on the primary VGA device. The NVIDIA Linux graphics driver
