Notice N5406 - System bandwidth appears to be memory limited. Generally this means that memory bandwidth is < 50% FSB bandwidth, thus CPU is starved. This generally indicates a mismatch between memory and system. Note that this does not indicate that memory timings are wrong, but the memory itself is slow.
Fix: Use higher performance memory (e.g. DDR or RDRAM) or use any additional memory channels (if present) to increase memory bandwidth performance.

For more information, please see the (FAQ).

if im reading that right, sandra is just yelling at you for still running pc133, just ignore her until you have money to upgrade to ddr, more pc133 would not help

'fraid not. ddr uses different slots - more pins.

sandra is tellng you that you memory is performing poorly relative to your fsb theroetical bandwidth, which is usually indicative of some kind of mismatch ex.- running fsb @ 175 and running the memory at 133 or slower
