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

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  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.

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

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.
