HP 937RX with System Halt 7

I came into work today to find our 937RX with a failed backup. Our support center had a coordinator reboot the machine.
We did a TC with boot from primary path and from the tape and in both cases the system halted.

I get a SYSTEM HALT 7, $0418.

Any tips? Have hard rebooted, attempted to recover from both tape and HD.

The only thing I can suggest is that you RS and not TC when you boot.
If I understand my manual correctly, this is a memory page alignment fault.

Need more info; prior to HALT 7, there is usually another error message like System Abort ####; if not, what is the 4 digit code displaying at the status line; look for something like FLT DEAD BFnn 01nn 02nn.

Thanks for the responses. It ends up it has a faulty hard drive. Stange that the system indicated a memory issue though. I replaced the primary HD and recovered the system and there appears to be no more failures.
