    512MB 184DIMM PC2100 ram

    have you ever thought of upgrading your ram?. last time i thought you needed to have some ddr400(pc3200) ram for the 3.0ghz chip. it is a 800fsb chip. 266x? = 800. i dont think so. just ,my $0.02

    moimit that sounds about right, your ram is too slow for the chip.
