I would first make sure you have the latest service pack for Win2K. If that doesnt help, I would take a spare hard drive, and do a clean 2K install on it, and try that. Then you can test installing the drivers and software you have on it etc..

I would probably try switching out (or trying 1 stick at a time) the memory first though.
