My opinion only; other may have another idea. I ran into this several years ago so I'm talking from a single experience. There are other frequent posters who do a lot more work/repair of computers than I do.

 

I thnk of a parity error as usually a hardware error. Please post the entire error if you can get the computer back from the BSOD.

 

Is this a new laptop or desktop. Have you ever stressed the memory before? How much memory do you have on the computer? It is possible that you have a bad memory stick at usually never gets stressed enough to fail. If the computer is relatively new, you may want to go to the manufacturer for some help and suggestions.

 

Check out these articles from Microsoft. One may be a fit for you. Note that the blue underlined text are links to articles. Please read this full post carefully.

 

Also Microsoft has a memory tester. Go here for instructions. I didn't read all the instructions but the short memory testers (like the Microsoft ones) do not do enough of a stress test which would cause the memory to fail.

 

Google for one. I have used Memtest86 in the past and it found a bad memory module that the quick test did not. I don't know if there are any better ones bu there is an article with some suggestion sand some helpful procedure discussions at the bottom of that article.
