Hi Joe,


Welcome!

Check the IML for POST error messages. What do they say?

Search for IML in here:

Thx,

Re: Power-On-Self-Test errors on domain controller

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.

There isn't any POST errors in the IML only in the event log viewer as i have mentioned.

I am getting this occasionally in the IML tho:

Blue screen Trap (BugCheck, STOP: 0x0000000A (0x0101030E, 0xD0000002, 0x00000001, 0x80A823DE))

I have turned ASR off but the system is still not generating any DMP files.

Any ideas?

Thanks


Joe
