Any idea og how to do that on a d510?

I know how to get the keyboard off
Try a reset from within the BIOS first. Far easier for a start.

Has this resolved the issue? I'm having the same issue currently on an Optiplex 360 that is brand new out of box.
I am having the same issue with an optiplex 360 that has been working fine for months until we moved it to another user. It has a postage machine and a couple other usb devices attached. Dell has replaced the memory and mother board from warranty and i removed the extra video card. It still gets a blue screen randomly that says memory parity, only once every few weeks or over a month. Reboot and it seems fine?
