'PCI BUS PARITY ERROR PCI SLOT?'

I have a ML 350g4p server here that is intermittantly giving 'PCI BUS PARITY ERROR PCI SLOT?' error.
The server locks up and displays this error on POST screen. I have to forcefully shutdown server and reboot, systems sometimes comes staright back to windows 2003 and sometimes needs to powered off for a couple of minutes before error goes.
This has been happenning approx 6 times this week and is getting more frequent, any help would be appreciated.

This error can be caused by PCI cards not being seated correctly.

Open up the case and check whether all the cards are fully seated. You can try pulling out each card and reinserting it.

There are no PCI slots being used at all
Everything is onboard or is SCSI

Hi Shane,

Try checking the LED indications for the memory.
Also try reseting the memory modules.
Btw, how many memory modules are installed in the server?

Also try a System ROM update available here:

All the Best!!!!!!

Re: 'PCI BUS PARITY ERROR PCI SLOT?'

there is four sticks of RAM installed.
Have checked the RAM error light but as it is an intermittant problem i cant seem to replicate the issue since the case has been opened.
Will check the light if when issue re-occurs.
