i just started up my lappy and got this: Hardware Malfunction Call your hardware vendor for support NMI " Parity Check/ Memory Parity Error The System has halted
When I start up my laptop the Windows splash screen loads but with vertical lines then the screen shows random fuzzy lines and colours and then the screen goes completely black and nothing happens. At first I restarted and ran in Safe Mode and ran CCleaner which after restarting worked for a short period but then would suddenly go to a black screen and one occasion went to a blue screen with the following message *** Hardware Malfunction Call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity Check/Memory Parity Error *** The system has halted *** .....
I'm running a NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS in my E1705 and I've been having some problems with the nasty BSOD. This is the error message I get: *** Hardware Malfunction Call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity Check / Memory Parity Error *** The system has halted It only seems to happen when I'm playing WoW... and its getting really annoying. I had thought it was an overheating problem before, but I've been able to keep my GPU temp under control pretty well lately.
i get this message when i play BF2 (only in BF2 i think) <small>*** Hardware Malfunction Call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity Check / Memory Parity Error *** The system has halted anyone know what to do.

My key board started malfunctioning about 3 weeks ago. I phoned Dell Support and they said that they would not talk to me because I voided my warrenty by installing Windows 7. Is that true? How call Dell get away with voiding a hardware warrenty when you install different software? There must be millions of customers who no longer are under warrenty and they do not know it.
My Inspiron N5030 Laptop won't boot it gets stuck after the Dell logo. Then a "_" sign appears at the top left corner of the screen and then it just hangs. I have already tried the Dell CD and run diagnostics with no problems found. Could it be a software issue or hardware as in malfunctioned hdd?
I have a laptop noteboook hp pavilion DV6-6b83ca model number . When i start my laptop after starting windows some time it goes to blue screen and the message is displayed with system hardware malfuntion haulted . what should i do to avoid this message.
I have a few systems (linux boxes and windows boxes) that are currently 32bit hardware systems with 32bit OS installed and running. These systems are HP desktops pc with intel pentium chipset, Dell desktop pc with AMD chipset, IBM xSeries servers with intel pentium chipset. But now I want to upgrade all these systems (workstation/servers) to 64bit OS, but need the 64bit supported hardware. Is there "possibly" any way to work around this 32bit hardware systems and make them ready to accept 64bit OS?
I have Win7 32-bit at home and my china phone can be detected and usb drivers were loaded but when im at the office using Win7 64bit, i keep on getting a hardware malfunction error. We are using here Dell Optiplex 3010 Desktop while at home im using an assembled CPU.
my Dell inspiron 15R N5010 crashed on me, I had no previous warning that this was going to happen, when it crashed I was just watching a movie and not using up much CPU power. The laptop had not over been over heated, I checked straight after it crashed. It now is completely unresponsive i've tried using different chargers, batteries and I have also checked the internal hardware and everything seems to be intact, I assume at the moment it is a motherboard malfunction.
I am running RHEL 5.3 for Power Series blade technology. I am trying to initiate a halt of the system from runlevel 3 and have the system stay powered on once the system has been halted. This works on RHEL 5.3 for x86/64 system by typing halt -h. However, this same command in RHEL 5.3 for Power Series will halt the system and power it off. I would like the system to remain powered on and sit at the "Your system has been halted" message. how to accomplish this?
Back when I was using Sarge, my machine could shut itself off when I halted it. However, I think due to some alleged security issues with my hardware, newer versions of Debian don't allow this. So, I have to manually shut it off after halting the computer. My computer is a Dell Optiplex GX1 PIII450 with 386 MB RAM. Also, it has a 6MB mach64 video card (01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage Pro AGP 1X/2X (rev 5c)), that, back in the Sarge days, I could enable direct rendering with mach64-20060403-linux.i386 DRI. This no longer works given the changes in Debian. So, no planetpenguin-racer for me any longer. Besides buying new hardware, is there a way to fix either (or both) of these issues? They both were fine in previous incarnations of Debian, but alas, are now casualties of the upgrades.

I am trying to set up a somewhat older Dell as a test box. I installed Fedora 13 on it. When I attempt to shut down the system, it reboots and powers back on. I have attempted shutdown using the GUI, and variations of shutdown, init and halt. All of these result in the PC powering back on. The only way for me to power off the system is to press and hold the power button.
My pc had hardware malfunction; power supply interruption. At this moment it is working stable. My Windows 7 installation is ok but Ubuntu Maverick which I used during crush has malfunction. When I start to boot it looks like this: I had to make a foto so you all can see the problem. all my important files are stored on Ubuntu partition..
If I type "halt" from root terminal , the system tries to shut down , its closing all apps and services , unmounting disks , shutting down network etc, but finally I can see a message "System Halted"...But it doesnt turn off the monitor though..is this a bug? I have tried many times , however "poweroff" works properly..I was thinking since these are similar commands , bith should give the same result ...I usually use "halt" as it has fewer char to type!
I purchased a Dell L502x and now I'm having problems with BSOD 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3 Here is my system info: -Windows 7 home Premium -x64 -Original OEM os is installed from Dell -Hardware is new, purchased from Dell and arrived on 3/15/2012 I have attached the required zip file.
I have a couple of Dell 1950s and in one of them, I have 2x Seagate 15K.5s that I purchased through Dell and I also have a spare sitting in my rack in case one goes bad, also from Dell. I was going to be repurposing one of my other 1950s and was going to get two more 15K.5s for it, but wasn't planning on getting them through Dell (rip off?). This way, could still keep the same spare drive around in case a drive went bad in that system as well. When I was talking to my Dell rep recently when purchasing another system, their hardware tech said you can't use non-Dell drives with Dell drives in the same RAID array because of the different firmware between them. Anyone know if it is true? Anyone have any experience with using drives from Dell in conjunction with the same model drives from a third party retailer?
My Dell Latitude D820 had lenny installed and working fine. I did not have anything exotic installed (other than perhaps nividia drivers). I went about upgrading to squeeze following the notes/documentation on the debian web site. During this process it mentioned that the following firmware was not going to be installed (as it is not freeware; BTW I had non-free in my sources.list): tigon/tg3_tso5.bin tigon/tg3_tso.bin tigon/tg3.bin On reboot it was clear that the new kernel was not in a healthy state. Even when booting with older kernels I had serious stability issues. After about half a dozen reboots trying to resolve problems I was experiencing the laptop would not even load the Dell splash screen on power up. I could not even navigate into the BIOS. Nothing appeared on the monitor (or external monitor). I put an ISO disk in the DVD drive to see if it would boot from the DVD; it seems to load but absolutely nothing appeared on the screen. I tried navigating the grub menu (not displayed) and load my windows partition. When it booted to the point where windows would normally display the GUI it flashed several times and displayed a 'BSOD' with the following message: *** Hardware Malfunction. Call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity Check / Memory Parity Error *** The system has halted *** It looks like my laptop is now FUBAR. It is out of warranty so any fix is likely to be DIY. Any ideas on how to resolve this?

I needed to reinstall win 7 --after the install the system says no network hardware installed, I went to the dell site on another computer, downloaded ALL the suggested drivers for my Service tag, installed them and still not able to connect to internet, still says no network hardware detected
My ubuntu server was working normally but it suddenly failed to start, stopping after the following message: init: ureadahead-other main process (587) terminated with status 4 after this message, the system halts and does not finish the start up processes. If I start the server in recovery mode, I get: init: ureadahead-other main process (587) terminated with status 4 [ 21.892940] ACPI: I/O resource w83627hf [0x295-0x296] conflicts with ACPI region HWMI [0x295-0x296] the system also halts and does not start. Right now, I can not use the server at all.
I'm sure there's an underlying hardware problem for this... but I figured I'd start here as I do not know the specific hardware issue. I'm in Ubuntu 9.10 (Ubuntu Studio actually) and my computer will not shut down properly. I get the splash, then a black screen, then something like #terminating processes, #closing connections, #blah blah blah, #will now halt(or will now restart if rebooting)
When I install GNU Common Lisp, and run (help), it suggest that as a next step I run (HELP 'CONS). This halts with a segmentation fault.<br>When I attempt to install the CVS version, the installer compains and bails, also with a segmentation fault.<br>If the fault in my hardware, or is it a program bug that should be reported to someone? If hardware, how do I force a full fsck on /dev/sda when I boot up?<br>Instinct tells me the problem is in gcl (GNU Common Lisp, stable or CVS either one), because I'm not seeing problems otherwise.<br>
I contacted the Dell support team to see whether my m1330 is affected by the bad batch of Nvidia Graphic card and I got this respond ----------------------------- On your concern about the Nvidia Graphics, I should say that your system is not affected by it, however I am a Hardware expert with the XPS Team and would recommend to diagnose the Hardware to identify any problems. To extensively diagnose the 'Hardware', your active participation is requested. Please follow all these steps mentioned below as they are inter related: 1. Disconnect all the devices which are connected to the system, like:internet cable,usb key,etc. 2. Power off the laptop. Disconnect the power cable from the laptop. 3. Close the system, turn it upside down, slide the battery latch and remove the battery. 4. Keep the battery out and put the system back in front of you..................
I got a problem with a Dell Latitude E5500. I can not disable the hardware beep after the gdm3 login screen has been loaded. All alsa beeps and system sounds are disabled and/or muted. I also tried setterm -blength 0, xset -b in startup scripts. They disable terminal-beeps, but not the halt or the gdm login beep. I tried wasting around with the gconftool, but nothing happened. It is an annoying sound. If you use, init 0 to shut down, no beep comes up.
For some reason my 8350i's Spell Check feature is malfunctioning as of today. I have all 4 Spell check boxes checked/set, and saved those 4 settings as checked settings. As working before, when an email is sent out, it shows the words spelled incorrectly and offers the correct spelling for the clicking of the trackball to correct. As of today, it WILL underline the incorrect spelled words in an email-but, if you hit send (expecting it to halt an offer the corrections) a black box displays stating "Input system error. The system is being restarted" and it sends the email out anyway - uncorrected, with the typos. I've done nothing out of the ordinary since this feature last worked... Things I've done/tried to correct/repair (that have not worked): 1) Several Battery Pulls 2) Several ALT Right SHIFT Delete's 3) Reregistered. 4) Master Radio Reset(s)
I am planning to buy an AW or XPS 16 in a couple of months, in US and one of my relatives will bring it in India, where I will be using it. Does anyone know if Dell has International coverage on their Limited Hardware Warranty? Will I be able to receive Dell's service (should any hardware problem arise) in India, for a laptop purchased in USA? Its not feasible to transport the laptop back to US just to repair it.
I'm experiencing very strange problem with my Dell Vostro 3750. This machine is equipped with USB 2.0 capable USB ports and USB 3.0 capable ports. During the power-up any USB devices (or even multiple devices via hub) can be connected to the USB 2.0 capable port. However if even a single device is connected to one of the USB 3.0 capable ports, the system doesn't start. I've reported the problem on the Linux kernel related lists: 59561 But the only answer was, that I should report it to Dell suggesting fixing of BIOS. Maybe this is a BIOS related problem, but Windows 7 starts on the same hardware configuration without problems. As I'm mainly using Linux for my work, two USB ports are practically useless for me, I have to connect all my USB stuff via hubs to USB 2.0 ports. My current BIOS (after last BIOS upgrade) is: DMI: Dell Inc. Dell System Vostro 3750/0VP036, BIOS A12 02/22/2012
I Have a XPS M1530 with windows 7 and vista installed on the hard drive. My sound has stoped working and then it restarts randomly when playing a dvd or a video file on the system. So i Phoned up Dell, and i tell them that i think the problem may be an hardware problem. As it happens on both of the operation systems, but plays fine through the headphone socket.
I received this dell laptop on 3rd of march 2009 and ever since I got this laptop, my life has been a living hell. I've written about my problems before: Vostro 1510 - touchpad/keyboard problems Basically, I've wasted plenty of time chatting with dell representatives and they have already replaced my touchpad (twice), heat sink, fan, motherboard, keyboard in such a short span. I've tried switching to different operating systems and it hasn't helped me in any way. Now, when I try to contact dell representatives, they tell me that its not a hardware problem since the hardware has already been replaced and so they just give me the same software solutions (reinstall os, reinstall drivers) as before without even listening to my problems. One time this representative even cut off the line. Now what I want to ask is : can i return this laptop now ? I know that my 21 day period is over but my work is really suffering right now because of this laptop.
I have a DELL XPS 15 L521X, (Mid 2012), I have Windows 8 on my machine, Suddenly when I restart my PC a black screen is visible without any error, but system continue beeping. Then I press Power button and shutdown it, after some time when I start it again, its start working normally. Once system starts its start working without showing any hardware or software problem whenever I shutdown or restart, sometime its start working sometime its continue beeping without showing any error.
My dell inspiron 3521 keypad is not working i have updated all the software and system update is on. i haven't installed any software, third party application or anything else like that which interferes with my keypad functioning. I tried to update the drivers for the keyboard from device manager but it showed that the driver is already up to date. I also checked the ribbon that connected to the keypad with the system hardware and there is no problem in the connection there also.
I have a problem with my mouse jumping to the top left of the screen (hovering over Applications), this will happen roughly every 5-20secs and makes it impossible to use.This started happening completely out of the blue after several hours of using my desktop today. Before anyone asks: It is not the mouse or hardware related.I have rebooted into fail-safe graphics mode and the problem has disappeared so I guess something related to nvidia driver or compizThere are similar bugs I have found but the solution are not applicable to my system.System: Dell Precision M4300, nVidia Graphics, Ubuntu x64 10.10
I just got my Seagate Momentus 7200.3 320GB hard drive today. I don't have any external cases I could use to do a backup image and I wanted to do a clean install anyway since I haven't done one to this system since I bought it. I've tried using Dell's driver disc that came with the system but it's out of date. The Web site has been a mess as well. Selecting through the service tag Dell is offering drivers for hardware that was never part of this machine and hardware that is apart of it isn't listed unless I look at all D630 drivers. Here's what I've downloaded: Quickset Application Sigmatel Audio driver Touchpad driver Smartcard driver
simple installs of CentOS5.2 i386 on 2x Dell C640's and x86-64 on a Dell dimension 9150 resulted in the System/Administration menu offering two entries each with the name 'hardware' and the icon showing a little chip hovering over a PC. I did "add this launcher to panel" on both as an easy way of checking their properties: The higher entry issues the command 'hwbrowser' The lower entry issues the command 'hal-device-manager' Both have the comment "view information on the hardware on this computer". I feel the hal-device-manager entry has the wrong name, comment, and icon. I think /etc/xdg/menus/system-settings.menu is relevant.
Just installed OpenSuse 11.4 successfully on my machine (E-machines T6212). Previously attempted to install Ubuntu 11.4 on it as well. Both OS have resulted in my computer screen turning white with blue lines and the entire system freezing; unresponsive to keystrokes and even keyboard CAPS/NUM lights don't respond. Only way I can get system to come back is to physcially unplug it, not even power it off with Power button. I believe there is something with my graphics card that may be the culprit; ATI Radeon™ Xpress 200M - ATI Radeon™ Xpress 200M Specifications Because for both OpenSuse and Ubuntu this problem came up. However with OpenSuse I am able to get to the Terminal Screen via : 1- On startup typing '3' into the screen and getting into 'grub' I think it is called. I am not able to GUI. I have read: Configuring Graphics Forum Page l in the forums here as well as looked into the Radeon page for the drivers. I have also found the following thread here dealing with my particular graphics card but : 1-In my 'xorg.conf.new' file in my /root the correct driver "radeon" seems to be listed. 2-I added "radeon" to my 50-device.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg-conf.d/.. directory

I am considering getting a Latitude e6400 from the dell outlet, but was wondering whether any of you remember/know whether refurbished systems normally qualify for microsoft's free operating system upgrade? Here it would be for a free upgrade from vista business to Windows 7 professional (manufacturers including dell supposed to announce these programs on friday) If the system doesn't qualify, I'll go ahead and order a refurbished system from Dell Outlet before Friday, or buy a new system on Friday.
I am going in for a clean windows xp install on my dell inspiron 1525. I have downloaded all the drivers from the support site, but want to know if these are really required?
