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?

I don't know anything about server - hopefully someone else will pop in.
In the meantime....

Can you use a liveCD (knoppix, Mandriva One, SimplyMepis, Puppy Linux, etc -
most linux distros have them) and backup the data? Then go ahead and wipe
everything (unless someone else can give you a fix).

Btw, knoppix hack

http://www.amazon.com/Hacking-Knoppix-ExtremeTech-Scott-Granneman/dp/0764597841

is classic on fixing window machines via knoppix. I'm sure you can do similar fixes
with other distros.
