F16 - ERROR EDID checksum error

I did not have this error in Fedora 15 and I am seeing this error in Fedora 16. I installed Fedora 16 using the DVD ISO image with selecting the Fedora 16 and Fedora 16 Update repos. This same error occurs in 32-bit and 64-bit versions on two different laptops.

Code:
Loading Linux 3.1.0-7/fc16.x86_64
Loading initial ramdisk...
[  1.873273] [drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum
See attachment for pic of error message.

Fedora 16 seems to run fine, not sure what is causing this error or how to correct the error.

Thanks.

Happens to me from time to time. Fix for me is to unplug the power cord from the monitor,
wait a little while, and plug it back in.

Well then you could try pulling out the battery for a few minutes.

Re: F16 - ERROR EDID checksum error

If it is a real checksum error, you probably cannot correct it. Extended display identification data (EDID) is a data structure provided by a digital display to describe its capabilities to a video source. Usually stored on the monitor in SPROM or EEPROM.

You could use a utility such as read-edid to check your EDID information.

Re: F16 - ERROR EDID checksum error

I'm seeing this issue as well on 16. I get the boot splash fine and then the desktop. This error shows just before the menu loads and dramatically slows the overall boot time down. I might try another display but any help would be great.
