Parity check

I would assume that means a parity check on your memory failed at location 10,000. But if so, that's kind of strange syntax.

You must check the message with your motherboard manual. It could mean different things.
a.- A parity memory error at location: xxxx (the most common message)
b.- A parity CMOS setup error message. While Bios has parity enable or disable the memory module have no parity or parity available.

Suggestions: Check if your memory module have parity. Set in Cmos Setup the parity value according the chip (SIMM, DIMM, etc) to the same value.
It's common that if you mix different memory modules, some of them have a different parity value. Under this situation , disable parity check in cmos setup (or better: replace the non parity module!)

When machines get hanged without any message or a previos slow response status, and it don't respond toctl-alt-del, the main reason could be a memory (corruption) error.
