Your FSB(FrontSide Bus, aka 'System Bus' aka 'CPU External clock' is running at 100MHz instead of 166MHz.
More info here' ">

Make sure your FSB('CPU External clock' is set to 166MHz both in BIOS and via jumper on your motherboard(if there is a jumper for setting FSB - refer to your manual for details).
Also, make sure your memory is set to '100%'/'synch' or 166MHz(DDR333) - memory timings should be set to 'by SPD'.
