Errors encountered in using Calendar (HP)
In reference to the problem above, I took an event viewer and tried to scroll down to find out the source of the error. In addition to that, events 4 and 5 appeared ever since I since I updated the BIOS from F.20 to F.21.
This is the error that I have been receiving after the changes I've made:
Error : Event 13, ACPI
The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This may indicate 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 an upgraded BIOS. In some situation, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.

HP Calendar Feature Error – updated
The error that you've been receiving is related to power option referring to mechanism for controlling the use of the hardware. Updating BIOS is only design if you have a problem with your computer and updating should only be done if necessary you should be sure that you follow the manufacturer exactly and some previous version do not support ACPI and also sometimes a BIOS update fails because the wrong update or the new BIOS was corrupt. If you don't have a problem with your previous BIOS version you should be downgraded it. Try this step:
First, download your previous version of BIOS and then save it to your computer and then copy it to CD. And then reboot your computer, press F12 and then select boot from the CD drive and save setting.
Then exit the boot menu and let the computer reboot by itself. And after that just follow the instruction and once the installation is complete your computer will reboot using your previous version of BIOS.
And that it, hope this will help
