Memory parity error


Hi Will,
Have you tried installing Windows with only one RAM Dimm in place?
It could be your DIMM slot that is faulty. Let me know if this helps.

We have an IBM ThinkCentre S51 Desktop PC and the computer froze up with a parity error. We restarted it and we would like to know if that will solve the problem for the future.



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.

NMI:parity check /memory parity error


In my experience, you get a memory parity error when one of your memory sticks has gone bad.
I don't know how many sticks of memory you have or what size they are, but you can try removing one and see if the error goes away. If not, remove another and try again.

You're probably looking at buying some new memory. If so, use the opportunity to increase your memory within the limits of your operating system.

Win XP, 32 bit, will see up to about 3.2MB of RAM
64 bit can see over that up to about 8MB

Hardware halfunction


Hi!
This behavior can occur if a hardware component malfunctions, or if there are damaged or incompatible drivers installed. As with VISTA!
To try to resolve this behavior, use the following troubleshooting techniques. Because Windows can display only basic error messages when hardware malfunctions occur, troubleshooting can be difficult. Most equipment problems center around the motherboard, the RAM on a motherboard or on an adapter, or the cache memory on a motherboard or on an adapter.
Remove any adapters that are not required to start the computer and run Windows. In many cases, you can start your computer with only the drive subsystem controller and the video adapter.
Let me know.

Try to start your EVO desktop in safe mode (press F8) before Windows loads.

Other things to try are a different graphics card or monitor.
