Windows Server 2008 Domain Controller keeps hanging after reboot

Everytime I restart, the server hangs after it shows the desktop area.

I agree with TG-TIS
Time to open the server and reseat everything.

Also check for dust that might be collected on the fan

Aircans works great

What is in the startup folder?

Dude, I can't even see my desktop. How do I tell you what's in the startup folder or event viewer?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I agree, restart in safe mode, check the event logs to see what's happening.

Couldn't logon to safe mode. It says that there is no logon server available. Been getting an error on the LCD. It says PROC 1 IERR, followed by PROC 2 ERR

Those are processor errors. Have you done anything with the processors, memory, heatsinks or anything else on the montherboard?

I suggest shutting everything down and start reseating everything that plugs in.

This thread indicates that the PROC 1ERR can be caused by faulty hardware apart from the CPUs, and sepecifically recommends removing the DRAC card: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/servers/f/956/p/19265571/20111925.aspx

Several weeks ago, there was an error about one of the memory sticks. I opened the server and left aside, the DRAC that contains that memory meodule. That was when I first saw the PROC 1Err. When this proc 1err showed up this time, I put both DRACs in there, and there is no more error message about memory. Will have to reseat everything and then also update the firmware. We cleaned and blew dust away from the fans last time.
