So I was browsing internet as you do during the day around 1PM. Suddenly the whole network goes down. At first I thought my server was restarting but it only updates at 5am in the morning.
So I tried to RDC onto it and the connection failed. I also tried other machines and nothing. Not even pinging each other.
So I shoved a monitor into my server and it was on the CMOS screen doing nothing just stuck there. So I rebooted the machine and after 10 mins Windows started but went into disk checking. I tried to abort it but the keyboard was not responding. So it did this check and after 3 hours it finished. It is now just on a black screen where I can move the cursor around and that is about it.
So IDK what to do. It is effecting my network somehow. Don't know how it would effect it like that.

You say that the server is failing to boot properly, but to be able to tell if this is what's causing the issue, could you please tell me, what role does this server play on your network?

Here what you can do:
1) Reset your Modem and for wait for boot up
2) Unplug your Modem and plug in after 10 sec and wait for boot up.
3) Check your phone line, like cables, Filters ect
4) Reboot your pc/laptop
5) Call your ISP to see if there is a network prob and Sometimes updates done by the ISP does not go to plan.
Also can you give name of your ISP and we can do some research for you if needed.

Have you tried hooking up a keyboard and monitor to the server itself and see what is happening? Are you getting the comamnd line log in. If you are getting a command lone login and able to log into the server itself check the uptime of the server. Maybe the server needs to be rebooted. Are there any processes that have gone wry on it by any chance???

This is just a guess but it might be getting hacked. Try to reset your passcode. Unplug the Ethernet while doing so. I hope this works. :)

Or maybe your modem goes bad (ie overheat) and everything inside is fried...you should try going to your ISP and ask for a replacement or something.
