    SBS 2003 R2, but it's showing a BSOD: why?

    Hi,

    I always thought a BSOD meant the machine crashed, but
    the server seems to working fine, the mouse is responding but the screen is blue, I can access network drives from client machines and I can see that it is backing up all okay. I’ve connect a difference monitor but no change, I’ve changed the keyboard in case it was stopping me getting to the log in screen. My instinct says to reboot and hope this helps, I’m not convinced this is the best way forward, any suggestions please.

    I would reboot at the first opportunity - if you can't get to the server at the console, then use either Remote Desktop or LogMeIn to initiate the reboot. In my experience, SBS 2003 servers need to be rebooted once every 4 to 6 weeks to keep things running smoothly.
