Parity Check / Memory Parity Error
Posted on 2011-02-16
Have a new Dell Optiplex 380 and it is giving me a memory parity error at startup on blue screen. Screen actually states:
Parity check / memory parity error
I've done many troubleshooting steps to no avail. Here's the findings so far.
Have five machines exactly alike in the office, so I was able to switch out the following items with KNOWN GOOD items from other functioning machines just like the problematic one. Also, I must mention that the machine will come up in SAFE MODE. Will not come up in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING or any other mode...only safe mode. I've switched out:
I also did the following:
Set bios to default, booted to safe mode and loaded anti-malware and scanned for malware (nothing), disabled most startup items, etc.
Any other ideas???
