Cisco 2511-RJ Issue

I have a 2511-RJ and I'm getting the following when I boot up the system:


System Bootstrap, Version 11.0(10c)XB1, PLATFORM SPECIFIC RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
Copyright (c) 1986-1997 by cisco Systems
2500 processor with 14336 Kbytes of main memory

Exception: Illegal Instruction at 0x10138CC (PC)
save_stack: discarding corrupt frame pointer (0xC1380000)

I've tried swapping out the boot roms and the memory.  No matter what I do, i receive this message.  Unfortunately this is out of warranty and is my home lab, not sure if anyone has seen this before, but any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!  Greg
