Hardware Malfunction - NMI: Parity Check/ Memory Parity Error - Help!

I have an XPS Gen 4 and before Windows XP loads it goes into a blue screen displaying this error:

Hardware Malfunction

NMI: Parity Check/Memory Parity Error

***The system has halted***

and I have to force the shut down of the computer. The RAM memory modules are practically new (Kingston HyperX), only about a year old, so I don't think they're the problem. What's causing this error, the motherboard? If anyone has had this problem before and solved it please let me know how. Thanks
