a humorous Anti-analogy
(found in the technical support pages of a PC-clone manufacturer)
Whenever I turn on my system, the error message "Ram Parity Error. Press F1 to continue or escape to turn off NMI." appears on my screen. How do I correct this?
This error may be caused by an incorrect BIOS setting in CMOS setup. To correct this issue:
Be sure to 'Save' changes to CMOS before rebooting your system.
- Press Ctrl-Alt-Esc to enter the CMOS setup.
- Select "Advanced System Configuration" from the CMOS menu and press <Enter>.
- Use the arrow keys to scroll down and highlight the field labeled either "System Memory Parity" or "Memory Parity Checking."
- Press the right arrow key to change the setting to DISABLED.
- Press <Esc> to exit the CMOS setup menu.
