Hi,

A few days ago I noticed that my mail server reboots itself out of the blue, but I could not find "unscheduled shutdown" entries in the eventlog.  This morning I could not log in to it, the system was hanging and would not even respond to Ctrl+Alt+Delete command.  I pressed the reset button and it came up with a blue screen with the following message: STOP:  0X00000050(0xD26C9282, 0x00000000, 0x80401CCB, 0x00000000) PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.  

I cannot even boot up in safe mode.

Please help.

ah if you debug the mem dump you will probably find its win32k.sys caused the problem. This is a problem affecting 2k with SP4 http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=835517.
Looks like a restore or repair is on the cards.
