Pci parity error


Hello it sounds like the BIOS is causing the issue PCI parity error means that it is having trouble detecting what interface onto the PCI bus compared to what it has stored in CMOS.

This will cause major issue with any device on the PCI level including IDE controllers soundcards etc.

See if you can remove the CMOS battery inside and reseat it, to clear the bios. If not then try removing any expansion cards on the PCI channel and reboot. You can always add it later which will either work or identify the device causing the issue. I'm thinking maybe its your ram as some ram has parity checking. Take out your ram and try just one stick. If it works you know you have a problem with a stick of ram!! If it doesn't work, try the same stick in a different dimm slot. With the price of ram at present, this will be a cheap problem!!

Here is the homepage:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3485#manual

For downloading the manual.

When you get the mainboard running again, please update the bios to the latest version.
A bios upgrade, sometimes solves hardware problems.
You just have to make sure it`s the right mainboard.

Hope this will help you

Cmos beep codes


do you know which bios your computer is running ?

AMI BIOS beep codes 1 beep - DRAM refresh failure

A740G M2L+ MOTHER BOARD ALWAYS HAS 2 BEEPS ON START UP AND ALWAYS RESTART


AMI BIOS - 2 Beeps: Two beeps means there has been a parity error in base memory. This is an issue with the first 64KB block of memory in your RAM. The solution is usually to replace the memory

Test memory one at a time. One slot at a time to help find DIMM / slot.

CAN I REPLACE THE MEMORY WITH A 4 GIG STICK


this will depend on your motherboard
whether you can install a 4 gb module of ram

you will need to select your motherboard from a dropdown list

also on the left will be types of ram ddr2 ddr3...... you will need to select which type you have


If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

NON-ECC/Non-parity - Most desktop and laptop computers take NON-ECC or Non-parity memory.

ECC/Parity - ECC or parity modules look for errors in data and are most often found in servers and other mission-critical applications used by large networks and businesses.

Unbuffered - Most PCs and workstations use unbuffered memory which is faster than registered memory.


hope this helps you

I have motherboard D 101GGC ofter boot screen will get 2 beeps


Without knowing which bios you have, it is not possible to give you a definitive solution. That said, you probably have to use different RAM.
I've put together hundreds (at least) custom built PCs and I've noticed the RAM type can be a bit elusive. The requirements can tell you to put "PC3200" in, for example, but there are other factors involved when it comes to choosing the correct system memory. Your particular issue points to the parity chip. Most MOBOs accept RAM with NO parity. Replacing the RAM with something different is your best bet.
Crucial.com is a fantastic site for choosing your RAM due to their tools for choosing the correct sticks. Additionally, they have phone support which is phenomenal when it comes to choosing the correct RAM for your MOBO.
I hope this helps. Additionally, I've provided a link below for different beep codes if you are wanting a second opinion.

If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

NON-ECC/Non-parity - Most desktop and laptop computers take NON-ECC or Non-parity memory.

ECC/Parity - ECC or parity modules look for errors in data and are most often found in servers and other mission-critical applications used by large networks and businesses.

Unbuffered - Most PCs and workstations use unbuffered memory which is faster than registered memory.

Registered/Buffered - Registered or buffered modules delay all information transferred to the module by one clock cycle. This type of memory is primarily used in servers.

Fully buffered - Designed for next-generation servers, features an advanced memory buffer.

CL - CAS (column address strobe) latency, which is the number of clock cycles it takes before data starts to flow after a command is received. Lower CL is faster. Modules with different CL can be mixed on a system, but the system will only run at the highest (slowest) CL.

Component configuration - (For example: 64Meg x 64) Indicates the size of the memory chip components on the module.

Voltage - For example 2.6V. Indicates the power used by the module. The lower the better. Check the glossary and FAQs for more detailed definitions.

Twice beep sound is coming. Booting is not happening for my p4p800 mx/s board


Hello !
If you check out ASUS support, you will find this troubleshooter for the motherboard not booting :
1. Please clear CMOS.
2. Please take out your memory cards and video card, try to clean their golden connectors with a rubber, then reseat them back.
3. Please take the CPU cooler out, add some thermal paste to the CPU surface, then reseat the cooler back and keep the cooler tightly installed.
4. Please keep the necessary components(CPU, one memory) onboard for a test.
Finally, we would recommend you to replace a BIOS battery to have a test.
Also, by looking over beep codes I have found for AMI BIOS these problems for the 2 short beeps :
1. Memory parity error (Description : A memory parity error has occured in the first 64 KB of RAM. The RAM IC is probably bad).
2. POST fail (Description : One of the hardware tests have failed).
If you have done those and it still doesn't boot, let me know I'll try to find other solutions.
All the best !

My computer just restarts itself over and over


Hi, I think it's a hardware issue because of ur RAM memory. Try cleaning it & put it back. (Trying another one is recommended). This may be caused by dust or the first 64k of ur RAM having parity error!
However, if it's a software issue, u will need ur OS installation CD & perform repair or format...

My motherboard is asrock p4i45gv, its always blue screen if install some aplication, why???


Well I think it's caused by a dusty RAM memory or defective memory causing a parity error in the first 64 kb of that RAM.
Take it/them out & clean with a student eraser or light alcohol. If prob persists pls replace RAM
Hope it helps u my dear

Can't read memory


You either have corrupted settings in your BIOS Setup or your Ram is bad. Before condemming ram, you should pull the sticks and try and re seat them. Also, some older PC's require bank 1 and 3 or bank 2 and 4. Check your documentation for any order that must be followed. Finally, make sure it is not miss matched ram. (60ns, 70ns, parity, non parity, etc.)
