i have a 3-3-3 pc133 RAM but it will post set to 2-2-2-5, after that w2k pro wont get starting and will give me a blue screen of failure with some addresses i have no idea what they r about. i think sometimes it says something like not being able to load some registry stuff. is that normal and is there a way to get using the tweaked settings?
thanks.

Looks like the memory is getting corrupted. I doubt that you will be able to get win2k to bott with those memory settings, you could try increasing the DIMM voltage if the BIOS lets you?
