My server has been crashing at differenct intervals over the past 3 days and there is no clear answer as to why.  The logs show:

SYSTEM ERROR
EVENT ID: 1003

Error code 0000009c, parameter1 00000005, parameter2 808977a0, parameter3 b2000010, parameter4 84200e0f.

Another LOG (USER32):
The reason supplied by user TSI-CN\Administrator for the last unexpected shutdown of this computer is: System Failure: Stop error
 Reason Code: 0x805000f
 Bug ID:
 Bugcheck String: 0x0000009c (0x00000005, 0x808977a0, 0xb2000010, 0x84200e0f)
 Comment: 0x0000009c (0x00000005, 0x808977a0, 0xb2000010, 0x84200e0f)

Can anyone help point me to what can be causing this?  

Thanks!!!

A STOP 0x9c error indicates a hardware problem. Could be CPU, memory, etc. You should contact the hardware provider and troubleshoot this with them.

Hi,

Did you determine cause of the failure on your machine? I have exact same message on W2K3 server this morning. The box has been stable for years.

Thanks,

Bob

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi Bob!

Ya, my box was stable too.  I don't have a clear direction as to the real problem, but the back up tape drive failed a while ago and I thought that this hardware failure may have been part of the reason.  Antoher was the print server.  I kept getting messages asking for driver installations for printers not connected to the network.  I re3moved it as a print server and I disabled the taped drive hardware in the system.  So far I haven't had any issues within the past week, but I'm cautiously optimistic ... LOL!!!  I hope this helps :)
