Any Event Log errors? And does DCDiag / NetDiag show any errors?

no errors and it hasn't been happening since then...This server currently runs the DHCP, DNS as well would it be ideal/possible to run DNS and DHCP on a none domain controller sever to eliminate down times like that?

Normally it's not a problem. Except in very very big domains DNS and DHCP are very light weight.

For DNS there are other disadvantages to splitting it onto a member server:

1. You lose AD Integrated Zones
2. You lose Secure Dynamic Updates

Do you only have the one Domain Controller?

What is the best way&I have one domain and 2 DCs. DC1 the one it was acting up a physical server hold DNS and DHCP, seconds DC DC2 VM and a member server set as a 2nd  DNS server. All users documents are all redirected to DC1 via GPO so Im creating a new file server because when DC1 hung things was real slow all over the network
 
Thanks
