Cisco 1841 error


When I try to connect in mode console serial port, I can't and a error message appears and loop :

"Cisco 1841 (revision 6.0) with 234496K/27648K bytes of memory.

Processor board ID FCZ103212F4

2 FastEthernet interfaces

1 ATM interface

1 Virtual Private Network (VPN) Module

DRAM configuration is 64 bits wide with parity disabled.

191K bytes of NVRAM.

62720K bytes of ATA CompactFlash (Read/Write)

%ALIGN-1-FATAL: Illegal access to a low address 12:48:52 UTC Mon Jan 15 2007

addr=0x12, pc=0x609E1A3C , ra=0x609E1A28 , sp=0x641B3BF0

12:48:52 UTC Mon Jan 15 2007: Address Error (store) exception, CPU signal 10, P

Is it a DRAM memory problem ?

Thanks for your help

hi Xavior

Error Message

%ALIGN-1-FATAL : [chars]

Explanation An alignment error has occurred. Alignment errors are caused by misaligned reads and writes. For example, a two-byte read of a memory address that is not a multiple of two bytes is an alignment error. Alignment errors are caused by internal software failures. The system will be reloaded, often with a bus error.

Recommended Action This message is caused by a software failure. To take advantage of recent fixes, upgrade your system to the latest Cisco IOS software release in your release train. If this message recurs, copy the error message text exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log, enter the show log, show alignment and show tech-support commands, contact your Cisco technical support representative, and provide the representative with the gathered information.
