    i/o card parity interrupt at f000:f188
    « on: August 31, 2009, 09:29:45 AM »
    Now this is something I have not seen before. Turned on the computer and got this error message: i/o card parity interrupt at f000:f188. I was given the option to shut down or reboot, shut down turned off the computer and reboot gave the same message. I checked online to see what this could be and found it might be a new hardware installation (no new hardware was installed), it might have something to do with the bios needing to be updated (computer right next to it with same version, installed at same time boots with no errors).

    I checked in the case and all cards are secure, the ram in secure and the cables are tight. I was able to get the computer to boot fully by tapping the DEL key, but when restarted it went to the error message again. There are only two cards installed, a video card and a firewire card. The video is on a riser, firewire into a pci slot.

    Fiddled with it some more and it has now booted fully again. Going to put a big sign on it "DO NOT TURN OFF".

    Still looking for the reason for the error.

    Dell Optiplex 755
    WinXP Pro sp3
    core2 duo, 2.53ghz
    2gb ram
    bios version A11 dated 8/4/08

    Thanks

      Like I said, there are two cards installed, a video card in a riser and a firewire card installed directly into the pci slot. The riser is in pci slot 1 and the firewire is in pci slot 3.

      Ok, got back to the machine and pulled the cards. The video is a Dell branded DVI installed in an agp slot on the riser card. The firewire card  has pca-00214-01-a and e175975 but no name on it. That is installed in the pci slot on the motherboard.

      hope this helps.

      Remove the firewire card and do a few consecutive cold boots...

          Ok, took out the firewire card, rebooted and it came up fine. shut down and rebooted 4 times and came up each time.

          Yes, the video card is on a riser. The gx755 we have is a small form factor desktop and the video card is full height. The riser is in the agp and pci slots on the motherboard and the video card is in the agp slot on the riser. That makes the card parallel to the motherboard. Not my idea of good planning, but then my name is not Mike Dell.

          Well it looks like that has fixed the problem for now. I will keep an eye on it and when I get the chance will put the card in another machine and see if the error message comes back.

          Thanks

          My guess is the firewire card has taken a dump...
          Good to hear you are temporarily fixed up though and Welcome Aboard ! !

          I just experienced the "I/O parity" problem on my Dell XPS running XP.  I took the suggestion of tapping the F12 key and got into setup.  On the Boot up option it was factory set at "fast boot up."  On a whim I changed it to "slow boot up" ( "Fast" and "slow" boot up terms may not be the exact terminology on the screen but you should have no problem identifying the actual terms.)  That change allowed a full boot up and appears to have solved the problem.  Why?  I have no idea but it has now worked for several boot ups.
