    Hi

    System Failure, sounds ominous, I would back up any sensitive data quickly, its possible that its a hardware problem maybe overheating, or a component fault.

    Hey follow the steps below and post a dump file here next time it crashes but as said above first back every thing you need up


    1. Right click My Computer and click Properties.
    2. Click Advanced tab and click Settings under "Startup and Recovery".
    3. Make sure that the "Write debugging information" has been set as
    "Complete memory dump". And the dump file will be saved as
    "%SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP".

    After the problem occurs again, open C:\Windows folder and check
    whether the memory.dmp file exists if it does post it here.

    Go back here and change Complete memory dump to something smaller like Kernel Memory Dump if not that use the last one there

    1. Right click My Computer and click Properties.
    2. Click Advanced tab and click Settings under "Startup and Recovery".
    3. Make sure that the "Write debugging information" has been set as
    "Complete memory dump". And the dump file will be saved as
    "%SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP".

    As for the mini dump it points to mfehidk.sys which is mcafee but they say it is due to Daemon Tools. Do you have that installed if not get it to crash and post more files make sure to change the Complete memory dump to something smaller

    another thing we can do is check the event log for any errors

    hi

    this is the main eventlog errors and warnings

    1 error id 6008
    The previous system shutdown at 12:25:43 AM on 6/27/2008 was unexpected.

    2 error id 35 wlbs

    NLB Cluster 0.0.0.0 : Cluster mode cannot be enabled due to parameter errors. All traffic will be passed through to TCP/IP. Restart cluster operations after fixing the problem by running 'wlbs reload' followed by 'wlbs start'.

    3 warning id 12 w32time

    Time Provider NtpClient: This machine is configured to use the domain hierarchy to determine its time source, but it is the PDC emulator for the domain at the root of the forest, so there is no machine above it in the domain hierarchy to use as a time source. It is recommended that you either configure a reliable time service in the root domain, or manually configure the PDC to synchronize with an external time source. Otherwise, this machine will function as the authoritative time source in the domain hierarchy. If an external time source is not configured or used for this computer, you may choose to disable the NtpClient.

    4 warnind id 1056 dhcp server

    The DHCP service has detected that it is running on a DC and has no credentials configured for use with Dynamic DNS registrations initiated by the DHCP service. This is not a recommended security configuration. Credentials for Dynamic DNS registrations may be configured using the command line "netsh dhcp server set dnscredentials" or via the DHCP Administrative tool.

    Was there anything new you installed such as software or hardware right before you started to get the blue screen

    try this http://www.support.microsoft.com/kb/937455

    Make sure you have the latest firmware/drivers/service packs installed for both Windows and the applications running on that server
