Windows 2000 Server
For the past few months the server has been having problems where it will lock up and experience memory errors. It usually causes one of the DIMM's to become disabled but it has been know to just lock up or simply reboot itself. At first I just replaced the RAM but it persisted so I contacted IBM and they believed it to be memory and/or the system board. Well to make a long story short after IBM has replaced the system board, the RAM, the processor, and the Raid Controller the problem still happens. It might be fine for a day or two but it eventually gets to the point where it is locking up once a day to twice a day to 4 times a day etc. IBM is fractured over this issue, as some believe it to be hardware but others believe it is the OS. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If on hardware front all has been tested/replaced by the vendor/principal manufacturer, it seems the problem now lies with your OS, some dlls might be misbehaving and OS need to be repaired.

    If you have replaced all the hardware then I would seriously consider making a thorough backup of the server and doing a format/reinstall of the OS as the next step. That would be my plan in this case.
