Setfont: KDFONTOP: Function not implemented

Hello there, this is my first post so please be gentle haha. I have been experiencing this issue on boot where many times it will hang on the boot screen with the message: setfont: KDFONTOP: Function not implemented

I have searched the forums and the solutions that were suggested didnt work for me. I have been usually just ignoring this and powering on and off my laptop until it boots but it is getting progressively worse and i finally feel like I need to get an actual long-term solution to stop this from happening. I literally just now had to power off and off 5 times to get it to boot into Garuda.

Thank you.

I don't think the boot problem is related though.
On a side note, since a while I'm occasionally experiencing random boot failure.
I used to think my laptop was about to die, now I suspect something with the graphics card driver.
You may want to open another thread for that issue.
