Hi I have another display at the viewer of the event and it has been scrolled down from the origination it had and I even updated BIOS to F.21 as some of the events appeared from when I installed this update of the BIOS. I have got the Error

The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This indicates that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or that the BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with your computer manufacture for upgraded BIOS.

In some situation, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.

ACPI Error: updated BIOS to F.21

If you tried updating your computer’s BIOS and successfully finished it when this problem happened, it’s possible that the version of the BIOS that you installed is not appropriate or doesn’t work. You may try downloading and installing a much updated version of your BIOS. You may also try shutting down your computer for a couple of minutes then turn it back on afterwards and see what happens. Try also removing the CMOS battery after shutting down the machine to clear some CMOS settings.

I’m not sure if it’s still possible to install the original version of your CPU’s BIOS since you already installed it with a much newer version but you can try if it’s still possible and the task permits it.
