NMI received for unknown reason b1 on CPU 0

I am using Debian Linux kernel 2.6.20.1 on a HP proliant DL380 G4 series server. I am receiving the following error.
'NMI received for unknown reason b1 on CPU 0.
You have some hardware problem, likely on the PCI bus.'

How can i fix this problem. Any suggestion is welcome.

Awaiting a quick response

It's telling you it's a hardware problem related to the PCI bus. Check cards that might be installed, potentially reseating or moving to another slot. You can use Insight Diagnostics from the SmartStart CD to run comprehensive hardware diags.

The SmartStart CD is a bootable CD so just follow the menus. For more information, consult http://www.hp.com/servers/manage --> SmartStart --> Support & Documents
