Windows Server 2003 - Blue Screen

I have a Windows 2003 Server and sudenly it died on me. I found an error message saying:

Memory/Battery problems were detected. The adapter has recovered, but cached data was lost. Press any key to continue.

After pressing any key, it will try to load into Windows and when it is trying to apply computer setting I get the blue screen of death.

You are going to have to use a boot disk and either repair it or try to see the Blue Screen Errors.  I would start with Hardware Diagnostics if you have it.

The message about the Cached data being lost due to a battery problem is most likely the Cache battery for your RAID Controller.  It is probably stating that the cached data was not able to complete the write process due to the sudden loss of power / shut down.  If it was writting to a critical area it may even be causing this BSOD.  

You may be sitting in a spot where your only option is a recovery from a backup.
