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

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 :)
