I have a Dell Poweredge 2600 with Perc 4di Raid 5 using Win Advanced Server 2000 SP4 that is a PDC.  The system locks up before the control alt del screen or shortly after the log on.  Unsuccessful boots are more comon the successful boots.    

The system will always boot in safe mode.  I have disabled most services.  When I do manage to sucessfully boot, I  then try to reboot with no chnges, the system will freeze (even though the previos boot was successful and I made no changes).

After talking with Dell , I have found that all firmware, bios and drivers are up to date as of this month. Hardware diagnostics have passed. There are no error messages in the event log.

 Does anyone have any ideas?  Joe
