Server Crash, Error upon reboot

Q: Server Crash, Error upon reboot

System Specs:
2 x 2.6 Xeon CPU
2 x 160gb SATA Western Digital Hard Drives - RAID
2 gb pc2700 DDR Ram
Supermicro 1u case/motherboard
Windows 2003 Standard Server

Here's the problem:
The server has been experiencing very inconsistant problems upon reboot. We're receiving the all so popular "REBOOT AND SELECT PROPER BOOT DEVICE, OR INSERT BOOT MEDIA IN SLECTED BOOT DEVICE AND PRESS ANY KEY" error, but it's not happening every time the system loads up. This system is new and I can vouche that this is not anything to do with the OS since it's been present for both OS installs (XP + Win2003) since the birth of the server. The server randomly won't restart, then after a few retries it loads without a problem. Usually the problem exists only upon reboot, but last night we noticed that the system was unpingable and had crashed, when we called our datacenter for help they informed us of the current state the system was in with the above error. Since we've had this error before and usually can get past it by a few reboots, it's a tough call. Right now the box is down and we can't get it back up. We lost control of our remote card as well.

What we've tried so far:
Browsing around various forums, I notice this error is a common one, but everyone has their own situation. I've tried disabling the PXE in the bios and rearranging the boot device order. Also we've swapped the drives and the system loads fine. It's difficult to troubleshoot this problem since the machine has been so moody in the past.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am stumped and can really use some comments on this one. Thanks in advance.

update: Just got off the phone with our datacenter guys and they tried swapping hard drives, loading with only 1 at a time, changing boot order again, and safe mode and each and every time the new problem is that it goes to the Win2003 splash, then get a Blue Screen of Death then reboots... EVERY TIME.

urrrrrrrrrrr

Preferred Solution: Server Crash, Error upon reboot

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

I am having some problems, when I start my computer, I get the following blue screen and reboot afterwards

"STOP C000021a (fatal system error)
The windows logon process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of Oxc0000005 (ox00000000 ox00000000)
The system has been shut down."

I have to start in security mode, and do a system restore, then the computer works allright for a while but after 2 or 3 boots, the error returns.

I found this thread with a problem very similar to mine, however I tried following some of the steps (passing the vundo fix, the ewido anti-spyware, etc) in order to solve this up but I had no luck... =(

New build. Win7 64 crashes & reboots randomly. Sometimes it will go for hours and then sometimes it will crash a few minutes after startup 3-4 times, consecutively. Under system reliability for every crash it shows:

I've attached the debug file.
I've already changed the igfxCUIService compatability mode setting to run Windows 7.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

About a week ago I got a popup from Norton Internet Security that said "We've detected an intrusion attempt from such and such IP address with the DeepThroat Trojan. This attack was blocked."

I didn't like the way that sounded so I did research on that trojan, but from what I read on the internet it didn't sound like I had it.

I ran scans with:
SpyBoy
AdAware
Norton Anti-Virus
Panda ActiveScan

And all came up clean.

Then some people said AVG was a good anti-virus, so I downloaded that, ran it, it came up clean, and then I deleted it because it slowed my computer down like crazy (constant 100% CPU usage, etc.)

Ever since then, I've been getting weird warnings and weird random program crashes.

I downloaded Firefox 3 the other day and it crashes a LOT. Some of the other programs I run have been randomly crashing, too (stock trading and charting programs).

I decided I was going to do a system restore to a month ago, but when I went into System Restore, ALL MY RESTORE POINTS WERE GONE!! I know I didn't delete them, so I'm wondering if some malware I picked up did.

I use Firefox for browsing 99.9% of the time so I usually feel safe surfing the web.

I'm using WinXP SP2.

edit - I forgot to mention that I came home from the gym the other day and when I got to my computer Firefox had crashed, all my other programs had crashed, and when I restarted Firefox, my computer rebooted. When it rebooted, there was a message from TeaTimer saying th... Read more

You know what? Nevermind. It turns out a RAM chip I recently installed had gone bad.

I swapped out the RAM and I haven't had a problem since.

Hello,

Is there I can find out a list of the programs that were open on my taskbar before my computer crashed? I tend to have lots of documents open (esp. text files I'm reading - i.e. not editing - for research purposes) and when my computer crashes or is forced to reboot, the only way I can guess which files I had previously open is by doing a Windows file search for files accessed in the past few days.

This doesn't always help - esp. as I hibernate my computer lots and files may be open and unchanged for several day.

Sometimes, when I'm about to crash, I quickly take a screen-dump of my taskbar or the task manager list of programs so I know which windows/files I had open... but isn't there a log of some sort somewhere containing information on which files were active at a particular time, just before a restart or system crash?

(I don't mean the program that caused the crash; I know I can find out about the crashing program from event viewer. I wanna know about all the OTHER program names I had open at the time. And I don't just want to know they were called 'notepad.exe', 'winword.exe' - I want to know the actual files opened up at the time of the crash. In short, I want the information I can get if I photograph the tabs on my taskbar just before a crash. We're talking about already-saved notepad files, photographs etc. that are open on my screen just before a restart.)

Any tips on whether Windows has this information somewhere? Are there any logs that... Read more

A:Post-crash/reboot, how can I find out what files I had open before the crash?

Hi esinohm and welcome to TSF !

Several MRU (most recently used) lists are stored in the registry, but you won't find a single list with all the programs that were opened at a given time.

http://windowsxp.mvps.org/RegistryMRU.htm

This article discloses the location of the MRU lists for office documents :
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;826208

Latest opened and saved files will also appear in the recent document menu in the start menu. There's a setting that allows you to see recently opened documents in the start menu properties : right-click the start menu => properties => customize next to start menu => advanced.

Have you tried investigating the reasons of the crashes ? Could be a single hardware problem. I can usually leave my computer on for a whole week without any crashes.

What are your system specs ?

Hello - thanks for taking the time to hopefully help me. :-)

I don't believe this is a virus/malware problem, but it started shortly after I got a windows message saying that Norton 360 was "processing threats"...I was (ashamedly on Fail.org), but not downloading anything. Here's a quick history:

My task manager was diabled, my desktop background was blank (greyed out), and regedit was not available. I also noticed that if I went in to change my desktop background, I didn't have the option of changing my background, or browing for one. And I was periodically getting a "windows" message (that was clearly fake) saying: "you system" is infected and to hit "ok" to download antivirus software...which of course I didn't.

When I performed a virus scan, there was no virus detected.

I then ran Ad-Aware and Spybot just in case. Ad-Aware found a few tracking cookies, and Spybot found 1 item (but for the life of me I can't remember what it was).

So, 1 day ago, I was able to reset the value in regedit to allow task manager and backgrounds...and all seemed fine.

But today, my system keeps crashing randomly and giving me the Blue Screen of Death. When I restart, I get a message saying that "The system has recovered from a serious error"

Similarly, my Outlook will freeze once opened...go through about 2 minutes of "Not Responding" and then work fine.

I also cannot connect to my network drives (G, F).... Read more

I am having trouble getting a WEI score to even be produced, and subsequently am not able to use the Aero theme in Win7 at all.
Whenever I try produce a WEI, I get the steps, "Examining Hardware" and then "Running the Direct3D 9 Aero Assessment" after which I get an almost immediate reboot.
I have tried this on x86 7100, x64 7100, x64 7600 and all versions I have tried, give me the same result. Currently, I am on x86 7100.

Here are my PC specs;
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600,
ASUS P5Q-E,
4x1gb G.Skill DDR2,
EVGA 320mb 8800GTS,
WD160GB Raptor system disk,
3xWD 1TB data disks

All drivers are up to date, BIOS is the latest version, I'm not sure what else to test. The system runs pretty cool.
As far as I can tell, it's either a) Bad O/S b) Bad drivers c) Bad BIOS settings d) Bad hardware

I have some pretty extensive testing of different BIOS settings, so I'm pretty ready to rule that out.
I'm running "official" windows 7 drivers from nvidia (190.62) , so am tentatively ruling that out as a problem.
Which leaves me to think that it's either Windows 7 not liking my hardware combination, or straight up faulty hardware. (either the video card is just stuffed, or possibly the power supply to the card is stuffed....or something else in the chain is stuffed)

I'm wondering if there's a way I can see if my video card is dodgy.
If need be, I could buy a new video card, but I'd really hate to fork out for something and still have the same problem, especially a... Read more

A:Can't run WEI - Crash / Reboot

Have rep for a well laid out problem description

Do you have *.DMP files in \windows\minidump? If so, they may pertain to these reboots. Can you please copy the contents of that folder to another location on your machine, zip them up, and upload here.

Otherwise, if there's nothing in \minidump, is there anything in your event logs (run eventvwr)? Ignoring the obligatory "last reboot was unexpected" event when the OS comes back to life, there may be something in there which is significant.

Okay, so, by way of sheer luck am I here to post this thread. For the past day or so, my computer has been in an epic struggle trying to frickin' reboot. It would go through all the normal stuff, get the pretty logo load screen, then after a while go to an auto disk defrag, but as soon as the blue background for the defrag would fill the screen, it would crash, and go back to start. Sorry about the crappy run-on sentences... I honestly don't even know exactly what I did to get back here, but I did try messing with a few settings. Either way, I have a sneaking suspicion it may very likely happen again so I got a Hijack-This log ready for yah! Have fun and tkays!!

The problem started when it was turned off while on vacation.

When it was turned on again nothing happened. No beeps nothing on screen. Verified the power, the fan was running. After taking off everything but the keyboard, mouse and monitor, and several more attempted reboots, it started up with message that disk was in floppy. There was no disk in floppy. Over time it progressed to W2K starting to boot but would get blue screen with message that registry was corrupted.

After more attempts could boot from CD for an attempted recovery. Was able to get the login but password no longer worked. Attempted to wipe C: and reinstall W2K. But it will not complete setup. Keep getting problems with a memory dump and reboot.

What is the problem here? I considered the BIOS, MB, software and HD. Nothing certain. Thinking of replacing MB but am not certain that is the problem.

My computer randomly crashes and also reboots on it's own a few times a week, and correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure this isn't normal. heh.... I'm running Windows XP.

There's no pattern when these problems occur. I could be surfing the web, playing a game or my computer would sit and idle for a little bit... then it'll reboot. This started happening a few weeks ago, but figured I could live with it. Unfortunately, it's gotten on my last nerve and I really wanna know why it does these things and how I can fix the problems.

Oh, the crashing only happens whenever I'm playing a game, oddly enough. It's not any specific game, but it doesn't happen with every game.

Also note: I've ran Norton and it didn't come up with anything. But I did remove a ton of spyware, yet my problems didn't go away.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I just want a computer without any major problems. And I know that'll be a little difficult when using Windows...

I've noticed an issue with my system rebooting when I leave it sleeping for too long, usually overnight. Applications are typically still open when I tell it to sleep (come on, that's why I sleep instead of shut down), but it has happened even when none are running (none from Metro either). According to the System Log, the system has gotten more than a few errors recently, especially coordinating to the most recent time it must have crashed during Sleep (around 0100 last night, roughly 5 hours after I told it to sleep), but I'm not knowledgeable enough to know what causes them.

A:Crash/Reboot During Sleep

Most of your minidumps are pointing to the driver: atikmdag.sys which is your ATI graphics card driver.

I would un-install the drivers via control panel and then re-install the latest versions:

AMD Driver Autodetect

If you're playing any games that uses Direct X 11 try using Direct X 9 if there is an option to select that for testing purposes.

Make sure you have all the windows 8 updates until there are no more if you have not already.

That's all I got, hopefully the experts will have more information for you...

A:Random crash and reboot

Description of the problem:

Everytime I launch a 3d application, my pc decides to hard crash and reboot, this happens 2 seconds after viewing a 3d animation on my screen, meaning if a game has a 3d animated menu, it will crash, if it doesent, it will crash as soon as i get in the game.

I've tried several 3d apps now, including Warhammer Online, Spore, GTR 2, 3d Mark Vantage, STALKER and the problem occurs with all of them.

The only interesting thing is that Warhammer works fine if i edit the user settings file and make it run in windowed mode. Switching it to full screen crashes it instantly.

Specs:
ASUS Rampage Formula w/ Intel x48 chipset
Intel Q9550 @ 2.83ghz Core 2 Quad
Corsair Dominator 1066 2x 2gb
Sapphire Hd 4870x2 2gb
Seagate 500gb
PSU: Coolermaster M700 700 watts
Windows Vista 64 bit, SP1

Things I've tried:
Changing the 8 and 6 pin PCI cables to the card
Reinstalling Ati Catalyst drivers and motherboard drivers
Using an older version of Catalyst
Unplugging everything but the bare necessities in the pc
Plugging the PSU into different power outlets in the house
Monitoring temperature
Running the 4870x2 at 100% fan before running app to ensure its not overheating
Using a household fan pointed to and from the pc for airflow
The only idea I have left is reinstalling windows with a 32bit version and possibly XP, other than that, I've got no idea what to try.
 

A:Crash/Reboot upon starting 3d app

Update:

Tried running a few 3d apps on the same config, except with a 8800 GTS (with nvidia drivers, obviously) and it worked fine.

I doubt the issue is in the PSU, but it might be with the way vista 64 deals with ATI?

This has been happening for a while, but didn't seem to be anything other than an annoyance...until I got a BSOD. I have run 2 malware scans and both revealed no issue. I have debugged an analyzed the mini dmp file.

Okay, so, by way of sheer luck am I here to post this thread. For the past day or so, my computer has been in an epic struggle trying to frickin' reboot. It would go through all the normal stuff, get the pretty logo load screen, then after a while go to an auto disk defrag, but as soon as the blue background for the defrag would fill the screen, it would crash, and go back to start. Sorry about the crappy run-on sentences... I honestly don't even know exactly what I did to get back here, but I did try messing with a few settings. Either way, I have a sneaking suspicion it may very likely happen again so I got a Hijack-This log ready for yah. Have fun and thanks!

Hey,

Since awhile I fixed most my pc issues, it was stable except that my GPU driver crashed once after booting PC, restored itself and that was it. I could live with that.

Now since a week or two my pc will always reboot after boot. Not instantly, but after 10 minutes of Firefox, game, or anything really. It will just reboot. There is no blue screen. There is no crash dumps. There is no log entry. Yesterday after this happened, my mouse and keyboard were not working and I had to reboot myself. That happened only once.

Now again it happened but differently. It didn't reboot completely. I could hear a connect/disconnect device sound, and the screen came back on, almost like a GPU driver crash. But then my screen went black for a moment and all apps that were running got restarted. It was like a reboot, but without seeing any of the boot screens of Windows.

Thanks for any input. I was planning on doing a memtest at any rate but would love your thoughts.

A:Once a day PC reboot, no dumps or log. also odd crash just now

I have newest drivers for chipset, GPU, etc.

Since this crash just now was different from the ones I'm getting everyday, I took a look. In the Logs: DWM.exe stopped working (this never happened before) and an Warning that my GPU stopped responding, and under Hardware tab my GPU has a ! and it says it is disabled because errors have occurred. It is however working just fine at the moment. I do not know if this is related to the reboots I have every day as I've never had any log entries before. I have a long history of GPU related problems and I'm just happy if it works most the time. Now I'm mostly interested in fixing the reboots without any log entries.

Well I was playing a flash game, and the computer started to have 10 second freezes off and on, not just in the browser but everything froze up, and then after a while it had a full crash, and it just froze completely. Anyone who uses vista home pc knows that trying to turn it off legitimately doesnt work most of the time in freezes/crashes...so I pulled the plug. Essentially my issue is, the computer rewrote something on a disk or in the harddrive when I restarted it...I dont know why... and now I am unable to reboot and I need to use a disk to reboot it. Will my information be able to be restored...Where do I get another disk of this sort...and is there anything else I need to/could do? I appreciate any help/suggestions

My PC is freezing a lot lately, at any given moment in XP. Just now I was browsing through another forum and it just 'hung' for ages until I decided to reboot. I can still move my mouse pointer but Ctrl + Alt + Delete, the reboot button on my case and all other functions result in no response at all.

After 10 minutes of no response I decided to cut the power, and reboot after 5 minutes. I then got a Blue screen which says:

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

<the usual text here..>

Detailed Information:

STOP: 0x00000ED (0x8657B900, 0xc0000185, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I then rebooted and got the same screen again. Finally on a third try I was promted to try starting XP in safety mode - which loaded drivers/data etc. and then rebooted before loading the windows logo.

Finally on the fourth reboot windows loaded with regular settings as if nothing ever happened. I checked whether any devices were displaying a yellow "!" in system info, but everything seems to be working in order.

Could any of you tech wizards help me out here? Possible causes etc.? Thanks

I'm out of ideas, hoping someone here can help. I'm having trouble with my desktop. I had to travel out of state for about a week and shut it down before I left. I had been having small graphic glitches that I was trying to ignore, and it was so rare that I almost thought it was imagination. The day I got back I fired her up and started to check my email when it crashed on me. It flashed to black and white vertical stripes for a split second and then rebooted itself. When it rebooted the monitor kept flashing no signal, and would go to sleep. I tried manually restarting the computer several times hoping it would come back on, but nothing. My first instinct was that it was the graphics card, so the next day I removed it and connected directly to the motherboard. To my delight it came on and appeared to be functioning normally for about 5 minutes. Then it was a repeat of the previous day. Same weird stripes, same reactions. At this point I was thinking it must be a faulty power supply. I paid a visit to my sister's house (who replaces her computer at the first sign of any trouble) and borrowed parts from her computer graveyard to test this theory. After finding what I was looking for I switched them out, still nothing. Any ideas of what it could be?

It was a faulty RAM stick, switched them out and it worked fine.

Hey guys,

Either that, or it just crahttp://www.sevenforums.com/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=38shes and when I wake up I have to force it to shut down and restart it again. I have a few theories of the cause of this problem, but I am no expert. I believe I may have a virus called vundo, as I have had other problems related to this virus, such as Firefox's search bar not working. Either that, or it may be something to do with Norton 360. I believe it happens over night because I have my Norton 360 set to run during times my computer is idle. I went to run a full system scan today, and withing 30 minutes the computer crashed.

Hi and welcome to the forums.

It seems Avast anti virus is causing BSODs for you.
Uninstall Avast anti virus completely using the Avast! Removal Tool and then restart the computer.

We recommend using the built-in Windows Defender along with Malware Bytes.

Also, run System File Checker to verify/repair the integrity of system files.

Hello-I have a problem with system crash and re-boot when I insert disc into drive, it will go the the blue color screen that says checking media information ,then crashes just before the next screen where you check which action you want the computer to take, and then restarts the computer..This happens about 50% of the time. Sometimes it works fine. Happens with a game cd, ormusic cd doesnt matter. I talked to a HP Tech and he had me un-install the drive, Un-plug all the cords going to computer, and hold in the on/off button in for 60 seconds??? Said the un-install and resart will re-install any bad drivers. Not sure about that power drain thing? He said it could also be a bad drive, but I just used the other drive and it did the same thing crash/reboot so I cant belive the drives are bad. ---Also get an error messege at start-up of " DISCover Socket Initialize Failed" , just has an "ok" tab and goes away when clicked. Not sure if this has anything to do with my problem, and also did a search here about the DISCover error and one other guy had that problem but nobody could figure that out I guess. Any help would be great. Thanks

Hey All,

I woke up this morning only to find that if I played a game, my PC would just freeze up.
With no warning, it'll make a stuttery, bleeping noise, then just lock on the screen.

As far as I'm aware, there is NO way to escape this. Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't work or Windows+D.
I have to manually reboot the computer.

I've tried downloading new ATI drivers and lowering the power my card uses - but to no avail.

I'm a big gamer, and for Christmas, this is a big let down.

Any help will be much appreciated, and if you need any more information don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks!

A:Games Crash, Reboot Required

Just to update:

I watched a video, and the same thing happened.
Me thinks it might have something to do with the sound drivers.

I'm running software to update my drivers, and Audio and Display need to be updated.
Fingers crossed this might work.

Hi peepz,

I need your help very very much...Anyways, the problem started because I restore an image of another computer of a different configure in the hard disk. Because of that, I cannot even start Windows XP OS and require to boot it. I used a CD to boot and enter Recovery Center(not sure what the exact name is but it is the blue screen).

I wanted to create a partition and when i tried to proceed, the screen said that the disk does not contain a Windows XP compatible partition and asked me to create a Windows XP partition on the disk. The problem is I do not how to do so. I tried to delete the partition but it failed.

Basically, I cannot even delete and create the partition, therefore could not continue the installation or boot. Can someone advise me what to do from here?

Thanks.

Hello, new poster here. I am at a loss of what to do, I have tried everything but come up empty every time.

Here are my specs:
Windows 7 64bit

Intel Core I7 - 2600k CPU @ 3.40ghz

Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3 motherboard

8GB ram

Nvidia 550TI

500W power supply

I was beta testing a new online game called Star wars the old republic, my old much slower rig ran the game fine, but I was in dire need of an upgrade. All my specs listed are new parts except the power supply. They were installed prior to the game, as well as a new install of windows 7 on a formatted hard drive.

I was running the game maxed out settings with forced anti aliasing. My computer would subsequently crash into a reboot loop upon entering the game world. The computer it would turn on, you would see the F12 for boot menu etc then crash restart in an infinite loop.

Updated the bios for my new motherboard

I thought my power supply was the issue so I unplugged all the fans except one + the CPU fan. Computer still crashed upon launching the game.

I burned the .iso of my OS onto a dvdr, so I put it in hoping to repair some files + finished updating, the game finally launched.

Turn to today, the the beta was over, so I install bad company 2. Thinking the power issue wasn't the problem I plugged all my fans back in, and cranked the settings up, load into the game. I crash within 20 seconds of a multiplayer game.

Unplug the fans, start up the game, crash within 1 minute.

A:Crash to reboot loop when gaming

Sudden crashes like you describe are more than likely the result of suspect system RAM. Interestingly, you posted specs for your system *except* for arguably the most important component. Watch your POST screen or head for BIOS see what sticks are in your system. Then check the maker's Website for any possible compatibility issues with your mobo. For the sake of system stability you should pair up RAM with only recommended mobos.

Hi all,

We had a server go offline without any warning and are a bit baffled as to why.
The system failed to create a mini memory dump, but created a large memory.dmp file (500MB)

The system is as follows:
Dell PowerEdge R210 II
Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 @3.3GHz 3301 Mhz 4 Cores 8 logical Processors
16GB RAM
Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard (6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 7601)
x64-based PC

Not sure why as no recent hardware/software changes and server is set to not allow windows update, but it decided to reboot itself without any warning.
This server has been undergoing testing for the last couple of months without any issue, and the worst is we were all set to move to it until this happened.

As I have only the large (500MB) dmp file, can you tell me what information I can post here that will help?

I have a dual boot of Ubuntu Linux and Windows XP. When I boot XP, I can get as far as entering my password at the users screen, and my desktop comes up and begins to load my programs, but each time it restarts itself, or just freezes without any warning or error message. It happens at different times each time I boot so it doesn't seem like one program is causing the crash. The core temp of the processor is low so overheating isn't a possibility. This doesn't happen when I boot my Linux OS or when i boot in safe mode which leads me to believe it isn't a hardware problem. I have booted in safe mode and scanned for viruses and ad-ware to no avail. Any advise or possible solutions would be greatly appreciated!

I usually get random crashes to desktop and BSOD's/reboots when playing Elite Dangerous.
I have all updated drivers...

Any help is appreciated. I hope I captured all the dump files correctly.
If not I can change the settings and create some new ones.
