I'm curious, are you getting this message before the OS boots up or while your running a program If you are getting it before the OS loads (the black screen) you might have installed the wrong type of RAM, check your paper work that came with your PC it will let you know what type of RAM to install i.e PC 100 or PC 133 depending on you system If you are getting that message while running a program than check your system resources in the system control panel, this will show you what processes or programs are using the system resources Than you can take proper measures on fixing you PC by deleting those programs
