Hello & Please Help -

I have a Windows Server 2003 machine that has developed a weird issue. The NICs will not communicate with the network, at all.
What is interesting is that they respond to pings during boot but when it his the applying computer settings part of the startup, the ping responses stop.
No patches have been recently loaded and I have reloaded all of the drivers for the NICs. I have also run the infamous netsh reset int command with no change in the the result.

Anyone have any ideas? This is a production Sharepoint Server and I need to get it back up ASAP.

Thanks!
