Server restarts when Ethernet cable is plugged in
I dunno where to put this, but thought this would be the best place.
Our proxy server spontaneuously restarted it self. The machine would reboot just after the Windows Splash screen but would work fine in safe mode, but not ok in safe mode with networking. We figured out it was something to do with the network cards, after disabling them in device manager. The server didn't restart when these were disabled. We updated the drivers and still no luck. I pulled out the network cable from the server, with the drivers still enabled, this time, the server stayed on. I plugged the network cable back in and the server rebooted it's self. This happens on both network ports.
Unfortunately im on holiday next week and week after, but fortunately im not going away. Im sure something is telling me that i cant have a holiday.
Can anyone help on this issue? Would replacing the ethernet cable help? or is it a case of the NICs (which is in the MoBo) that are knackered and needs to be replaced?
