well It seems to have cleared up. I took the system compleatly apart and reseated everything including the cpu ............the only thing I can think of was that my Alpha pal 8025 wasn't compleatly install right or wasn't settin on the cpu right because after messin arround with the 2000+ and getting the bios to work rght i NOW HAVE THE 2500+ IN HERE.............and it seems to be workin
