windows 2003 hardware error : memory parity error

We are having a dell 1850 as a stand alone server . Sometimes it boot normally but when i do right click format on a harddrive i get  the error  'windows 2003  hardware error : memory parity error '  other than that , i can work , and do anything i want on the server without error. Only when i do righ t click and try to format one of the drives.
Sometimes i get the same error when i get i boot the server...

Is it that obvious (or it might be something else ? )

thanx ,

Nick.
