R60 / Blue Screen - Parity check / Memory Parity Error

2008-06-22, 10:05 AM
Hello there,

I got the following blue screen in the last days.

Can someone tell me what this means?


*** Hardware malfunction
call your hardware vendor for support
NMI: Parity check / Memory Parity Error
*** The systen has halted ***

I have a Thinkpad R60. If you need additional information about my notebook, I will post it here.

Thanks! :)

Have a nice weekend
daMike

Windows Memory Diagnostic Here

 

A parity error is usually a memory issue...it could also be the video card.

 

First try reseating the memory sticks then see if it boots without errors.

 

Try removing any extra memory sticks leaving only the least amount that's needed for the laptop to boot and run Windows...Restart and see whether you still get the eror messages.

Hi,

 

same error here. I get this error when I use photoshop Cs3 with the demo of the http://www.digitalfilmtools.com/ezmask/ plugin. If i open the plugin I have about 1 minute to mark the edges and than the error appears. I replaced the memory, but no change. Then I got the same error in some freeware game. Sorry I can't remember the name. The effects are the sam, colored lines moving on the screen and than bluescreen.

 

I use Vista64 Ultimate 4gb ram, I know the r60 is limiting it to 3gb :( .

I personally think its not a memory problem but a problem with the video card driver, but I don't know for sure.

If anyone knows a cure, feel free to tell us :)

 

Greetings

Ok, I tried this:

 

I use Memtest86 to check the memory. The result was that the memory was broken. So I bought an new memory part, builed it in and run the Memtest86 again. Then I got again an message that the memory is broken. This means that the motherboard is broken.

 

So I send it to Lenovo Customer Center and they repaired it.
