    I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 with Windows XP, SP2. I just got a blue screen with the following error message:

    <<Hardware Malfunction
    NMI: Parity Check / Memory Parity Error
    The system has halted>>
    The computer still boots and this error message comes after some time.

    What can I do to fix it?

    At a glance:
    It appears you are using RAM with Parity checking enabled, and either the board or the RAM is failing.
