    I have been dealing with this NMI: Parity Check / Memory Parity Error ***The System Has Halted*** Blue Screen.

    I've narrowed it down to the internal Wifi WLAN card on this Dell laptop. I've already tried new RAM. I even ordered a new WLAN card from Dell.. As soon as I install the driver, specifically BCMWL5.sys, I get that BSOD with the old card and the new. If I disable the adapter, I can boot.

    Anyone know the solution?


    Dell Inspiron E1505
    2GB Ram
    Old WLAN: 1390
    New WLAN: 1395

    Use an external Wifi card or try to get a good driver from the manucfacturer (Broadcom I am guessing)
