Error Code:



This error indicates an issue with your server’s memory. It occurs when the CPU fails late self test.


First, you must determine the source of the problem. In the case of this error, the culprit could be the CPU or the DIMM(s). Start by updating your firmware to the latest version. HP has released a few equipment firmware updates that address this specific error, so make sure these are all installed. If this does not fix your problem, replace the DIMM(s) in your machine. Start by replacing the DIMM(s) that have excessive “MEM_CORR_ERR” first, and move to others if the error continues. Finally, if this does not get rid of the error, replace the CPU.
