There is some kind of serial card installed in the system, it is either burned out, defective, or has come loose out of the socket.  Open up the case and find out which cards need reseting.  If there is still an error after that, remove any serial card.  Remember, that if there is a SATA controller card added, to run SATA drives, or a RAID card to run a raid array, those are also serial cards, and will give an I/O parity error if bad.

Don't open the laptop just yet.

It sounds like a video card issue.  If it were loose then I'd bet it wouldn't work at all.  Try to update the bios on the machine.  If you keep hitting ente, it may boot into windows for the bios download/update.
