I have been handling a server from last 2 months.Actually this server as owner says got restart suddenly then when it started working suddenly all machine attached to it got dump error.After manually restarting the server the attached machine came back to life but server got out off order.Its getting restart continuously after every 10 seconds.It reaches till booting point then suddenly dump error screen flashes for a second or two then again it gets restart.
I am trying to solve this problem but am not getting where it is actually.So now I have decided to format its C drive,but problem is that office persons will loose there database as they didnt took backup from last week.
What to do?

First of all, backup all the important data from its Hard Disk Drive.(remove HDD & connect it to another system, backup data )
Then define the problem is hardware or software - clearly !
1. Scan the system with an antivirus software updated latest virus definitions.
2. Check the Operating System otherwise reinstall it.
3. Check hardware parts like RAM, SMPS, Processor(cooling fan) etc,( newly added hardwares too) .

i think mostly its a hardware fault. (Its getting restart continuously after every 10 seconds)

Anyway, best of luck!
