Default CPU to PCI bridge parity error and master abort in PCIsniffer

Hi, I'm trying to install ubuntu on an old PC and was getting some random results (mostly hangs in weird places) so I ran UBCD and after a bit of rummaging around not knowing what I was doing, I ran PCIsniffer. It says that it detected a parity error in the CPU to PCI bridge, and that it had received a master abort. I don't know what that means, and googling didn't help much. Does it mean my mobo's dead?

PS I already tried wiping the CMOS in case that fixed it, but it didn't...

here's a screenshot:

I wouldn't think you're board is dead, as we see it working.

As for the error, I am unsure.
