C2650 reload when swich on - %SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL error

I have a Cisco 2650 router with 64MB/16MB memory. The IOS version is 12.2(8)T5. I use a NM-HDV-1E1-30E module.

When I Switch ON the router (or reload it manually), it returns every time a Malloc error and reboots by itself.

After the reload, everything is fine, Interfaces and Controllers are up, DSP initialised.

What it could be? Not enough memory? Hardware / Software problem?

Thanks for your help.

The errors messages returned are:

%LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface ISDN-VOICE 1/0:15(30), changed state to up

Re: C2650 reload when swich on - %SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL error

I think the issue is insufficient DRAM; I'm not sure what image you have loaded, but here are the recommendations for 12.2T and the 2600:
