auto power off in WIN 95

By choy.waigiat ·
When I power on my PC and when it loads to the windows desktop. The PC will always automatically power off by itself.
It also show a message that says "Memory Parity Error" when it boots up.

is it a Motherboard problem? RAM problem?

thanks and regards,

auto power off in WIN 95

The most common cause of parity errors when first booting up the PC are incorrect configuration or using the wrong type of memory.

Check to make sure you are using the correct memory for your motherboard.

If the answer above does not resolve your problem check your RAm chips, especially if you have recently added RAM. If you ahve more than one RAM chip and they are not the same parity they will cause problems, also if one of chips on the RAM stick isgoing faulty it will often give an incorrect parity response and simulate the same problem. this can be checked by swapping RAm from another source and seeing if the problem goes away.

BTW once you get running properly check your system boot setting in Windows and uncheck the box beside the instruction "auto reboot on error"
this will allow it to continue openeing with minor problems.
