so we have a server machine that's constantly hanging...for the last 2 hours i've had to restart it twice. this is rather annoying, since this machine handles all database related requests on the website, including the login mechanism...

what i would like to know is, what should i be looking at before getting into the hardware parts? not much of a hardware person so i'm kind of saving that for last...the first [and only] thing i've done so far is defragment one[c:] drive [it has 3]--it's still running right now. the red area's much too large for my liking! :whistling:

any input would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

Hey there neverborn, also getting the computer to run a bit faster other than running defrags.

Is making sure that the computer does not build up on any un-used programs, you can un-install programs that you dont usually use.

Also if you use the "msconfig" utility, you can disable some un-used startup programs.

Open MsConfig:
==========
> Start
> Run
> Type in "msconfig"
> "Startup" tab

Let me know how things go. Cool :whistling:

hey spike_hacker_inc,

thanks for the input...the server appears to be running smoothly now, [after the defrag and uninstalling several programs] , still, just got back to work after the lenten break, so i guess we'll find out if it's okay already or not... :whistling:
