I'd say best bet is to try to re-install again, but i don't know alot about Win 2k3 so wait till others post help and advice on the subject :)

Assuming that your computer meets the minimal requirements to run Win2K3 I would guess that the installation may be corrupt and you might want to reinstall. However, the monitor frequency comes to mind. This leads to your video card and monitor drivers. Please give us a detailed list of your computer's hardware and we may be able to suggest a solution.

It is okay spec wise I think. The RAM is odd being 300,000 and 3 memory cards. I guess that is 384 MB and 3 sticks. Is the hard drive defragmented? When you installed it did you do a clean install (new partitions and format)? Somtimes a old hard drive will simply fail. Is it making grinding sounds? Check the monitor frequency and video card drivers.

no need to defrag if you are going to format. Make a clean installation if possible. In other words dont run setup and overwite the existing installation. Use the hard drive manufacturers utility disk and rebuild the hard drive, i.e. new MBR, new partition, format. Otherwise is you run an overwrite the registry will retain multiple entries of the setup. Do a clean install anytime you install any new operating sustem :)
