Parity is a means of checking RAM for errors. Many PCs use memory with parity, but a growing number of low-cost PCs do not. In some cases, you may find that non-parity memory is a bit less expensive than memory with parity. If your PC uses parity RAM now, continue using memory with parity. If you switch to non-parity memory, be sure to disable “Parity Checking” in the system’s CMOS Setup. Otherwise you’ll get serious memory errors, and the system probably won’t even start.
