I would suggest that you run the Exchange best practises tool on the machine. You can download that from 
That will scan the machine and take you to the correct links at Microsoft to resolve any problems.


What version of Exchange/Windows are you running? Exchange 2003 performs a memory config check when the store starts. Do you have the /3GB switch etc in the boot.ini?
