Hello All,

I am running a Server 2003 Std Ed, about once a month it just crashes for no reason. Mouse and keyboard locked. Cant ping it. only option is to hold power button in and restart it. It did it today again but the was the following error in the log:

"Unable to read the disk performance information from the system. Disk performance counters must be enabled for at least one physical disk or logical volume in order for these counters to appear. Disk performance counters can be enabled by using the Hardware Device Manager property pages. The status code returned is in the first DWORD in the Data section."


This error started repeting it self from early hours of the morning server crashed at 08:45 but the error is still in event log up until i restarted it. (10:22). Is this a sign of bad disks or controller? (Im running a Adaptec 2410SA Controller with 4 disk in RAID 10).

Also this error was repeting it self at the same times:

"An I/O operation initiated by the Registry failed unrecoverably. The Registry could not read in, or write out, or flush, one of the files that contain the system's image of the Registry."

If it is the conntroller can this be change with out reloading data? is it just a matter of swopping the card?
