DC5800 with NVS280

We have installed spare nvs280 graphics cards taken from DC5750,s into DC5800's to enable us to have two TFT screens attached. All 10 devices now intermittently get a blue screen " Hardware error : Memory parity error etc."

Is there a hardware compatability issue with the pairing?
Is there anything they can't do ??

Re: DC5800 with NVS280

We have the same issue with over 100 DC5800 SFF's. Same video card causes the issue for us. Our solution has been to install a different card so far. Driver updates for the old card have made no difference. Maybe a BIOS update would fix this? or changing the IRQ of the PCI video card?

Re: DC5800 with NVS280

It turned out that that version of graohics card was incompatible with the DC5800. it was originally for a DC5750. WE repplaced the card with the corerect version and the problem went away.

Thanks for the response:
