    Default Memory parity error

    Hi
    We're having problems with “new” (secondhand) PC. It's shutting down at random and displaying error msg:

    NMI:Parity Check/Memory Parity error

    Manual says memory modules (there are two 1GB memory sticks) should be installed in memory module connectors 1 and 2 which are in separate pairs of connectors. However, the two mem sticks are installed side-by-side in connectors 1 and 3. Is this likely cause of the error? Thanks.

    One problem can be hardware failure See this article Also read This Forum Post #3.

    Download memtest from my sig, unzip it and burn the ISO to a CD, ( image burner in my sig also if needed) Boot from the CD & run a memory test - and work through the form post above in the second link.

    errrrrrrrrr........it usually pays to do what the manual says !
