This has been discussed here many time in the past. You can search this
newsgroup's archive at e.g. http://groups.google.com.  Most probably you
have too much salt in your sample and should dialyze your sample prior to
boiling. Check for example this document (p.11)
http://www.gradigels.com/support/protocols/iGels%20Product%20Insert.pdf .
Reducing the sample volume might also help a bit.
