Dell Poweredge 2800 & SQL

We have a Dell 2800 Poweredge Server purchased last year and we cannot run any version of SQL.  The server shuts down the application that uses it.  We dont have any problems with COMPAQ servers.   We have tried Windows 2003 sp1, Windows 2003 R2 32bit and 64bit.  Cant get any help from DELL.  Has anyone had any problems with this?

Did the app install cleanly? Do you ee errors in the event log when it crashes? Are you running it as a service and seeing it fail then or does the GUI crash? When you say the server shuts down the application that uses it what do you mean? Does SQL crash or a front end programme accessing SQL. Are the Compaq servers which run the app configured the same way / OS and are they the same level of hardware?

All apps installed cleanly.  We installed to two servers at the same time.  The compaq ran fine.  The SQL express services shut down and the application crashes.  Same OS, different hardware.  Same basic default configuration and installation.

I would bet money that this is a hardware problem.  Most likely a motherboard or a RAM issue.  This server is certainly capable of running SQL Server and it is Microsoft LOGO certified for both 2000 and 2003 Server.

My suggestion is to call Dell and get them to fix it.  If it's only a year old it should be under warranty.

Motherboard has been changed out...  I will try the RAM.  But lately, its been like going to the dentist office to get parts replaced.

Thanks.
