All those errors are for the same device in the same slot.
A PCI device slot on a laptop can refer to either a slot for a device inside the case (a logical and physical slot for a removable device, or a logical slot for a non-removable device) , or a slot for a device plugged into a PCMCIA (PC CARD) slot or a SmartCard slot on the outside of the case (a logical and physical slot for a removable device).

Did this happen after you flashed the bios? If so, if the bios version is different from what it had, flashing the bios often doesn't load the cmos settings for the changed bios version - go into the bios Setup and load bios defaults to load the correct default cmos settings for the bios version.

Unplug everything plugged into the laptop other than the AC adapter, main battery, and the ram and try booting.
If that doesn't help, with those things still unplugged, if you haven't already done so, go into the bios setup while booting and load bios defaults, then try booting.

If that doesn't help, since it last worked properly....
- have you spilled any liquid on the laptop or has it been exposed to liquid otherwise? If so, it may have been damaged if liquid got inside of it , even if it was't running at the time.
- have you dropped the laptop?
- have you changed which ram you have installed? If so, you can get strange symptoms sometimes if the ram isn't 100% compatible.
