Today’s blog entry was created to help you when you get a multi-bit unrecoverable ecc error in a blackout error message.
Resolve Common PC Errors
If two dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs) are installed on an IBM System x3200 M3 system, an unrecoverable Error Correction Code (ECC) error may occur. This bug is not uniform.
How do I fix uncorrectable memory error?
Possible solutions. Most correctable and uncorrectable memory errors can be corrected with a BIOS update. See the server BIOS release notes for solutions. Run Insight Diagnostics and replace any failed parts.
What causes DIMM failure?
Recommendations for replacing DIMMs DIMM fails memory test during BIOS due to Uncorrectable Memory Errors (UCE). ECUs arise and investigate actions whose errors are associated with memory.
|Note. Refer to the repair manual or service tag of the entire system being serviced for DIMM population guidelines.|
|Note. If multiple DIMMs being processed have multiple CEs, a qualified Sun support representative should rule out other possible causes of the CE before replacing the DIMMs.|
How The System Handles DIMM Errors
When you press the Remind button on the motherboard (or the memory tray option for x4450), the LEDs associated with the DIMMs follow and the system has detected twenty-four or more CEs per the specified 24-hour period on that DIMM.
What is uncorrectable ECC?
“ECC uncorrectable” means there were enough small bit errors in the sector that ECC could only detect a small number of bad bits, but couldn’t tell which ones (because if your company knows which ones are wrong, change them and get the correct answer). This is an error that can be reported to the host and could mean loss of data.
|A warning. Attach an anti-static wrist strap to chassis ground (any unpainted stainless steel surface) before checking components. Motherboards and hard drives contain components that are extremely sensitive to static electricity.|
