    After getting this helpful hint, I studied the motherboard manual and discovered that the memory had been put in the wrong sockets. I had 2 2gb memory sticks. They had been placed in Sockets Dimm_A1 and Dimm_B1. According to the manual the first placement should take place in Dimm_A2 and Dimm_B2. I changed the memory per the manual and the computer worked fine. That was an important help for me to find the actual problem.

The code A6 indicates bad memory. If it is new take it back or replaced under warranty.Most memory manufacturers have a lifetime warranty.


If it came with the new computer, take the whole computer back and get it replaced under warranty.
Please let me know how you make out.
thanks

I/0 card parity interrupt at F000:E1AD. Type (S)hut off NMI, (R)eboot, other keys to continue


Hi there,
This error refers to an expansion card having an issue. If you've got any cardbus, wifi, bluetooth, etc cards take them out and see if that resolves the issue. More info here:

HARDWARE MALFUNCTION CALL YOUR HARDWARE VENDOR FOR SUPPORT NMI : PARITY CHECK / MEMORY PARITY ERROR THE SYSTEM HAS HALTED what should i do now


Hello sumeetbapu,

Here are 2 suggestions which might be helpful in determining the cause of the nmi error:

• 1. Use the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool to test the RAM on your computer:
http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

• 2. Review this article from Microsoft Developers Network: What does an NMI error mean?
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/oldnewthing/archive/2007/02/27/1769274.aspx

Finally, you may need to replace a memory module. If you need help with replacing the memory, please be sure to ask.

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

PC beep 5-2-2-1 code on startup, no posting


I THINK IT IS MEMORY UPGRADE, ALSO MAYBE A PARITY ERROR, SOME MEMORY DO NOT NEED PARITY ON THE CHIP SET, AND IF IT HAS PARITY ON THE CHIP THAN YOU GET ERRORS,

REMOVE THE NEW MEMORY AND SEE IF THE MACHINE WILL WORK IF SO THAN THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE NEW MEMORY,

RAM TYPE: EDO, PARITY AND NON PARITY MEMORY, FPM MEMORY, THE CACHING MEMORY NEEDTO TO HAVE L1 OR L2 OR EVEN L3 CACHING CAPABILITIES,NMI ERRORS .
not:::: EAch manifacture may have a different voltage in the curcuitry and it may have the wrong voltage but i think that way out there and not to even consider it.....

does the manufact even allow that much ram upgrade???
