    SubjectNMI ??
    From
    Date
    Hi

    Yesterday, i added 64Mb of memmory to a box i have (compaq deskpro 575, 2.0.36
    kernel) and it never got to recognise it. I tried to boot linux and it got it
    all. But during the boot, i got this :

    Uhhuh. NMI received. Dazed and confused, but trying to continue
    You probably have a hardware problem with your RAM chips or a
    power saving mode enabled.

    It's comming from arch/i386/kernel/traps.c :

    asmlinkage void do_nmi(struct pt_regs * regs, long error_code)
    {
    #ifndef CONFIG_IGNORE_NMI
    printk("Uhhuh. NMI received. Dazed and confused, but trying to continue\n");
    printk("You probably have a hardware problem with your RAM chips or a\n");
    printk("power saving mode enabled.\n");
    #endif
    #endif
    }

    The thing i'd like to know is what's going on, is it gonna hurt by any way :)
    what does it mean..
