Dell Perc6i Problem

aclaus225 used Ask the Experts™
I was having a problem with one of my network adapters on a Dell Poweredge 2950 so my supplier shipped me a replacement motherboard.  On installing that motherboard I now get this error:
RAID Adapter

Memory Error !!!

Please check the SDRAM Connection

I have reseated the RAID card and the memory.  I even went to the extreme step of putting the old motherboard back in the machine, but that did not solve the problem either.  

Any ideas?

looks very similar to your problem

what type of raid controller is it? Perc?


It is a Perc 6i.  

I replaced the motherboard on the machine this morning and after booting up that is what it said.  It also did it, though, when I put the old motherboard back in it.
then the memory on the PERC6 is defective
