Hallo guys,
I'm really at my wit's end right now. Every bloody time i heavly demand my server's (specs down below) network capacities, it freezes completely. No I/O-reaction, no work going on in the background, no network-communication, no events triggered or caputured in Window's event log. However, the machine's still running if it occurs, the fans keep spinning and no bluescreen shows up.
Sometimes a simple download does the job, sometimes accessing it parallel to that (e.g. streaming a movie) triggers this.
I was only manage to sort this out by plugging in a computer monitor (which apparently is quite unusual for a server).

I'm using the following machine:

Intel Celeron G540
8GB DDR3-RAM (2x 4GB)
ASUS P8H61-I LX R2.0
Samsung HD204UI + 3 other HDDS, even though this is the main storage-device
Fractal Design Array R2
Windows Home Server 2011

Every driver is up-to-date, except for a so-called "PCI communications controller" which i wasn't able to identify so far. But since I don't use any PCI device, I don't suppose that this has anything to do with my problem.

Does your computer have any viruses?

No, of course not.

Have you tried restoring to factory settings?

What exactly do you mean by that? The computer's self-build, i.e. I've assembled it as well as I've set up the OS.
