Default Blue screen errror?

Hi,

I recently bought my Acer notebook and I am quite satisfied with it, but I get the same error three times so far and I think that I might have to take it back. I bought it with additional 256 MB of RAM so now it has 512 MB of RAM.
The system fuctions O.K. but I get a blue screen saying HARDWARE MALFUNCTION
NMI:PARITY CHECK/ MEMORY PARITY ERROR
THE SYSTEM HAS HALTED
Then I rebot it and everything functions O.K. The strange thing is that it happened three times on the same spot. My workplace and when the notebook was connected to electricity. What should I do?

Regards from Macedonia. Ljupco

it's about the ram.
Test the ram sticks seperately and see if u still get the blue screens.

I installed two identical RAM sticks and I'll see if the problem will disappear. Thanks for the help, though. Regards from Macedonia. Ljupco
