Parity check problem

Hi all,

This "ICL 5750" laptop/notebook throws out the following

NMI: Parity Check/Memory Parity Error
The system has halted.

That's if and when it got as far as loading windows (2k).
If prior to booting windows, bios will just halt and display
"Parity check 1".

I swopped out the single 64m RAM chip with a known
working one - no difference. I've also tested that RAM
chip in a different machine - it's fine.

Can anyone advise as to what else the problem might be ?

Had the same problem Saturday.
One of the memory chips on the graphics card had gone bad.
