  1. Hi,
    A user is complaining that his PC freezes up time to time. I checked his event viewer and saw a warning I didn't understand. The following warning occurs atleast once a day. WHat could be causing this? I have also included the event viewer for app and system. Thank you for your help!

    Here is the Event ID page discussing this error in detail. I've seen it before in my work, but unfortunately I don't remember what resolved it.

    make sure (especially a 3rd party) firewall allows in/out ports 67+68 to or from any.

    the renew cycle should only be occurring when the LEASE expires
    (see ipconfig /all)

    mine is ~forever
    Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : Tuesday, February 17, 2009 3:06:17 PM
    Lease Expires . . . . . . . . . . : Monday, January 18, 2038 7:14:07 PM​
    but check your duration. If it's ~24hrs, then the renew cycle is suspect

    So now monitor for the event between 17-2-2009 and 20-2-2009.
    If none and the next occurs on 20-2 or 21-2, then suspect the renew cycle is being
    inhibited -- as in the firewall

    Makes sence.

    So if this warning appears during the renew cycle then it would soley be an issue with the Firewall?

    When this problem occurs, I'm assuming that I would not have any network connection?

    Right before the warning message, i got this message.

    Dosen't that mean it was able to connect properly?

    I applogize for all the questions. I'm tring to learn so that I know for the future. Thank you!

    hum; If it occurs when not connected to the Internet, then this is an artifact of that condition, ie ... how could you expect otherwise :)

    the firewall issue is just one case, there could be others. clearly though, the firewall
    has the potential to inflict this symptom.

    I didn't explain my self properly. What I ment was when this warning occurs does that mean that I will not have access to the network?

    Also why does it say it successfuly connected 10/full right before the warning message?
