It's an error in a single ECC check bit at the address in your post. It's not a data bit, but I don't think there's any way to fix it except to replace the memory module that caused it. Since it's an error in a Chipkill syndrome bit, you might temporarily "fix" it by disabling ECC checking in the BIOS, but, frankly, unless it's a dire emergency, that would be a bad idea in my view.
