Server stopped responding

Our server stopped responding this morning, not even the monitor would display it was as if it were powered off. I could ping the server from a workstation but not RDP or access any file shares or Exchange.

I hard booted it and it appears to be running now. (even the monitor) I posted the only errors I found in the Event system viewer (below) but can't tell what they mean or if they are the cause of the problem. Has anyone see this problem or can anyone tell me if these errors are the cause?

Thanks


A process serving application pool 'DefaultAppPool' failed to respond to a ping. The process id was '528276'.

The browser was unable to update the service status bits.  The data is the error.

The time service encountered an error and was forced to shut down.  The error was: 0x800706BB: The RPC server is too busy to complete this operation.

The browser was unable to update the service status bits.  The data is the error.

The loss of the time service would cause login to stop working.  Adjust the recovery on the service to First time Retry, Second time Retry, Thereafter retry.
