I have a server 2003 and it stopped responding today and freezing. I have to cold shut it down and then it comes back up to the desktop but its taking a long time " 10min". Then it acts like its working ok and then it freezes gain and I have to shut it down. Its just a workgroup server that has a database to which 8 computers use. Its a dental software database. I'm looking at the event log now and i'm seeing this:
The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort0, did not respond within the timeout period.
i'm actually seeing a lot of these. What exactly does this mean and how can I fix this?
