continuously press F8 on startup. Boot in safe mode and run diagnostics on it. it may be some kind of virus or driver issue.

After starting the PC As soon as you see the "Windows 2000" splash screen display, press the F8 key. A DOS screen shows boot options. Select Safe Mode from there..........

Hi,

As soon as the server boot you keep press the F8 button, it will bring up the OS options. Since the server has issues, i would suggest you to select "Last Known Good Configuration" instead of Safe mode.

The issue may get rid off if any driver or update causing the server to blue screen.
