  • Question

  • I seem to have gotten most issues out of the way.  This is the last (hopefully).  Periodically, the system will just stop.  I reboot, get to the login screen, login and it freezes again.  Reboot, get a grey screen and freezes, reboot.  The third attempt logs me in and everthing is fine.  Here is what I get from the system log:

    Prior to these in the log, the last entry was 5-6 hours earlier.
    Memory has been verified, HDD have been verified, drivers up to date.
    I'm at a loss.

  • You've used memtest86 and other such tools? Reinstalling the OS? If it is something erratic and hardware-related, it could be the motherboard and even the power. I don't know what you can but switch components until you can isolate the problem

  • Everything is brand new except the PS.  It is 450w. I have 2 drives internally and 5 external in a storage tower connected with a esata raid card. (no raid)

  • When did this start?
    Was this from the start?
    Is this a custom built machine?
    Did you recently iinstall new add-ins or software on the server?

    Cheers,

  • It started from the beginning.  Yes this is a custom built machine.  The addins are:

    Disk Management
    MyMovies
    Remote Alert

    All done when the system was setup.

  • Hmmmm, in that case it indeed looks like hardware is the cause of this.
    You can still remove those add-ins and see how that goes, but I would rather suspect hardware at the base of this problem.
    So maybe follow Evaders99' advice and try to isolate the hardware components by switching.

    Good luck & I hope you'll find the cause,
    Nick
