This is a commonly reported problem. See here:
Also search the list archives; you will pull up several hundred posts describing
the problems other users have faced and how they overcame them.
Other things that would be helpful to know if you are still having problems:
What does your system contain? Did it adequately minimize? What kind of
equilibration procedure did you perform?

Maybe you want "Protein Non-Protein" instead of "system" here? But that's just
general advice, without any knowledge of what's in your system.
