Really? Wow!

There was a single bit error, this means a bit flipped and was corrected.

Allow the system to boot and get exclusive access to the memory for testing.

Just reboot and monitor.

Hope this helps!

Re: HP 9000/800/rp3410 having memory Error


the memory dimms caused the error! the system picked it up as part of its monitoring. they didnt work as it should for a brief moment but corrected itself.

generally single bit errors will correct themselves and be ok, as long as they are not getting worse. monitor the memory and test if possible with STM. better to have a short maintenance window to test rather than risk a full system crash with it, if there are lots of errors or they develop into double bit errors! if you get more errors in test then you have time to arrange downtime to get it replaced.
