Memory parity error
Explanation: A parity error was detected within the system memory. Parity checking is used to detect memory corruption between the time that data is written to memory and the time that it is read back. See here for a complete explanation of system memory error detection and correction. This error message means that there is a problem associated with the system memory. Depending on the system, you may be told some specifics about what part of memory caused the error.
Diagnosis: There are many possible causes of memory parity errors, some of them only related indirectly to the memory, or even having nothing to do with the memory at all. In particular, a memory error at start up is often indicative of a wide variety of possible problems.
Recommendation: Diagnose the parity error further here.
