Whenever I start my laptop I get this error. Also whenever my battery is low and I put on the charger I sometimes get spammed with this error multiple times at once maybe 20 or 30 pop up error. How do I fix this problem? I have a lenovo Intel(R) Pentium(R) and I'm using windows 11 home version 22H2
