    Got the service Pack crap SP4 on a Windows 2000 server

    had the BSOD cycle until I found it was the Network Cards..(both) causing

    If I boot in Safe Mode and disable then boot, activate on of the cards, then
    reboot its OK for a few hours or min.. than crashes again

    this is a Proliant ML 530 with a 100 and a Gig card..

    if I disable the cards the Servers stable..

    I have tried reinstalling the cards, moving the cards, upgrading the
    drivers, reinstalling SP4...

    all 111 hotfixes

    yet all to no avail..

    Still BSOD's with KMODE, and a few others like IRP, and stack errors

    The server is a DC, what would happen if I put in the Server CD and
    reinstalled with winnt32.exe, I know on a workstation it keeps the settings
    and resets most of the stuff back to the original install... would this work
    with a server with AD ?

    re-run the 2000 driver Paq on the system.

    SP4 was a bad idea anyway, but now you know that. Betcha didnt archive so
    you could roll it back, huh?
