DC7800 "Parity Check 2" after HDD addition

Today, I bought a 1TB HDD for my DC7800. I installed it and it was found in BIOS, but after restarting, it simply says "Parity Check 2." Pressing any key causes it to shut off the monitor.  Researching this issue, I found it's usually caused by a PCI device or by the memory, but that doesn't really make sense since I did not change anything other than adding a new HDD. I am currently in the process of resetting the CMOS. If you need any more information, feel free to ask.

I don't always have issues with my HP DC7800; but when I do, I post here.

Resetting the CMOS and disconnecting the new HDD did not work, so maybe it is an issue with something else.

Okay, it turned out to be one of the PCI devices. I must have bumped it or something. Thanks for reading this topic anyway! I hope I can help others.
