Also after looking in the HP proliant intergrated management log viewer i am seeing critical errors saying:

ASR detected by system ROM


Blue screen trap (bugcheck (a long numerical code) )

After doing a bit of research on the net i'm beginning to think it may be a problem with the cooling system. I think it may be overheating a forcing an automatic shut down.

If any one else is anymore knowledgeable and can give any advice it would be much appreciated.

Thanks a lot.
