Would the fact that the FSB is only 166 instead of the necessary 200 be the reason my system was acting the way it was? I'd hate to go through the trouble of trading these back in for PC2700 only to have the same problem.

Ummm... I really don't think this is a Windows problem, everything works with the old RAM and nothing works with the new RAM. My machine is a store bought Emachine that only has a system reinstall disk that would wipe everything from my computer. Not going to go through the hassle for something that MIGHT make the system stable but probably won't.

Ok, tomorrow I'll trade in for PC2700 and see if that helps the problem.
