NMI Parity Check Error

I have a HP server DL360. When i start the server I get a error message "NMI: Parity check error". I tried to go to BIOS setup then get another message is "PCI bus parity error PCI slot?". Has anyone face this issue before? Please help to advise.

Thanks alot!

Re: NMI Parity Check Error

I am having this same issue with 2 new Proliant ML350 G6 servers. I proved this morning that the error is due to a PCIE modem that was installed into both of these servers.

I'm reasonably sure that the system is checking parity on the bus and the modem causes the failure even though there is no failure.

I can stop the error by removing the modem.
I have searched the BIOS to disable the parity checking on the PCI bus but have not found where that setting is yet.
