Windows system error: Unknown hard error
Posted on 2006-05-19
Our Windows 2000 sp3 server has recently been receiving the following message box:
Windows system error. Unknown hard error.
We are unable to close this message box, and after some time (5 minutes or so) the machine proceedes to shut down and reboot.
I have searched all over and have performed some of the potential solutions such as disabling the event log service and renaming the .evt files, and then restarting the service, to no avail.
The server will work for some period of time (1-3 hrs), but then the same message will appear.
There was a powerfailure the other day, and I don't think the UPS software shut down the machine properly, and ever since then we have been getting this message.
I am offering 500 points, and any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
