This is a duplicate question... as I said, it sounds like you might have a badly corrupt or damaged hard drive, which is hanging the OS every time it is accessed, whether by you or Domino.  Fix that, then see if you need to do a data recovery and/or Domino re-install.

Ok, it is my firts time here but i am and olddog about Lotus Domino.

The question is clear, the server have a problem into the file system ( or damaged hard disk like answer you gwaletee), when Domino start the firts job is read notes.ini (locate at /lotus/domino/) read the enviroment and start jobs in order to check the status of the database (the more important database is names.nsf (all the configuration is locate here, connections, users, mailboxes,etc...)), if the file system is corrupt Domino will crash.

You can make a test in order to check the status of databases ( maybe that filesystem be ok, only one datebase are in  bad state):

 run from OS the task compact (ncompact.exe if you are using windows )
or run fixup.exe (nfixup.exe if you are using windows).

Remember run this command from the location of your data directory, you will be prompet about the password of the server id and then this tasks will check the status of the databases in the directory where you are.
