Parity error pops up when the memory encounters a read error. It may be a one time glitch or a sign of memory failure to come.
'Parity' is a form of error detection that uses a single bit to represent the odd or even quantities of '1's and '0's in the data. Parity usually consists of one parity bit for each eight bits of data.
On most systems, a parity error detection results in the computer system freezing entirely and the displaying of a 'Parity Error' message on the screen. The system must then be restarted.
I would run a memory diagnostic to see if your memory (RAM) is stable.
Download Windows Memory Diagnostics tool,copy it to a CD and run it. There is a User guide to instruct you how to do this.
