Windows Server 2003 R2 Freezes

hey there,

Windows server 2003 R2 freezes up every time i go into "My Computer". If i have 2 Windows open eg. Event Viewer and My Computer, I am still able to work in event viewer, but the My Computer window doesn't respond. The network cable is unpluged.

any ideas on this.

go to the event viewer and check if there is any error

possible cause
what is the RAM you have on the server

how many harddisk on the server, and how many logical hard disk you prepared for the OS
i think your problem is from the hard disk, and low memory

So what u r waiting for
Change the HDd
And noo need to locate the 4 hdd for OS, u should locate 2 hard disk as raid 1+0, each hdd is 147 gb or 64 gb, for Operating System.and u add more 4 hard disk as raid 5,if u want to use it as file server or raid 1+0 for good performance

Make ur Ram 4 GB
