Keep getting a memory_management BSOD when loading windows 2000 on an Aptiva 2170. It worked fine for about six months then died. Won't let me do a clean reinstall. Upgraded memory to highest 256 but still get BSOD. Help!

Giving the error message, rather than just saying you get a message, would be helpful

Two main reasons for this one...first, the new memory. Remove it, reinsert the old memory. Will it install now?

Second, a device that is not compatible with Windows XP

What else might you have installed?

man, they have completely erased that PC from the IBM site...I was hoping for a bios upgrade or something, but cannot find it anywhere.

Can you check the memory -- even the old stuff -- and tell me, are their memory modules on both sides of the stick?

I recently ran into a machine from around this era that simply would not install windows xp with double sided dimms...I am wondering if you are in a similar situation

Also, in bios, can you disable any kind of caching? Can you disable the l2 cache for example.

I fear that this machine simply is not compatible with win2k

btw--this win2k disk---is it an original, sp2, sp2 or sp3 or sp4?
