Hi Experts,
  I have a Windows2000 family server and when I turn it on it just hangs at the progress bar and then it reboots on its own. What steps can I take to determine what is causing this behavior?

What else do you know about this server ? was it working until now ? Do you know of any hardware change lately ?

Do those tests to get more info:
- Boot from Safe mode. Does it boot ?
- Unplug the network cable and try again.
- Unplug any hardware attached and any usb device except mouse and keyboard. Does this solve the problem ?

Boot it using a LiveCD like Parted Magic, then look for the last 3 *.dmp files, zip them and upload them using the EE-Stuff Link.

Since you can boot into safe mode, you can also access the dmp files that way.

rindi, I am thinking this might be a problematic NIC driver. Look at all the problems with network protocols.

maybe uninstalling and reinstalling the NIC driver would fix this or making sure there are no NIC driver conflicts is worth a try. Safemode did work, and that means the generic Microsoft NIC was loaded up.

rindi , the dmp files are old there are no recent ones.
