We have an Exchange Server with 32bit Server 2003 that has started getting the following blue screen error.

Blue Screen Trap (BugCheck, STOP: 0x0000007e (0x00000005, 0xF54A493C, 0XF5D12C30, 0XF5D1292C)

 It then reboots.  This occurs sporadically and I cannot find a pattern to when it occurs.   It is an HP box and I have run the hardware diagnostics from HP which found no issues.  I have run memtest which found no issues.  I ran chckdsk /r with no issues.  I have scanned for viruses/malware. I also found something that pointed to our Symantec Antivirus so I  updated the Symevent file on the server. I have attached the minidumps.

 I am getting the following errors in my event log

Event ID: 1001  Source: HP System
Power-On-Self-Test (POST) errors occurred during the last system startup.

I did check the IML log which just listed the stop code.  I don't see anything in that link that tells me specifics about the stop code.  It does list some HP error log numbers but not the two that I am receiving.

I ran the HP Insight Diagnostics which stated that all drives are functioning properly.  Is there another tool you recommend for a second opinion?

And the messages displayed on POST (when you turn on your computer, before Windows loads), you have checked if there is anything wrong? Your logs indicate that the problem is in POST.

I do not see any errors displayed on POST.  I did install the hotfix but that did not help and I have not removed a RAID adapter from the server

It points to Symantec.
Do you have a Symantec product installed? Product version?
Is it up to date?

If no:
Uninstall it and see.

It is Symantec Endpoint Protection Version 11.0.4000.2295.  It is up to date.  I had found something on Symantecs website that pointed to this issue.  They suggested that I update the Symevent file on the server which I did but I still have the same issue.

Ibawolf Unfortunately no. I'm running 11.0.6005.562.

Can you Uninstall it and see?
( Just to try, first disconnect it from the network )
