I have a windows 2000 machine that is being seriously slowed down by hardware interupts. I have tried to use the sysinternals software to determine what it could be to no avail. Please Help!!

Server or Desktop?  Clean, fresh install?  Have you tried default BIOS settings?  Updated the BIOS prior to clean install?

Its a server. I am trying a repair right now on the server.  I have not tried the default bios setting.

How did you narrow the problem down to hardware interrupts?

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

Unplug any unnecessary external devices. Re-seat the rest (keyboard etc.)

Re-seat the hard drive cables.

I used the sysinternals application to drill down to the message about the Hardware interrupts. I disconnected everything internally and it hasn't  helped.  Is there anyway I could see what it is that would be causing this issue?

This all started after we had a stutter in our electricity Tuesday afternoon. Up until then it was working fine.
