Default upgrading server system

We have a server system in the office (small office). Unfortunately the server has been playing up on us recently, randomly it will restart, automatically re-arrange settings, sometimes won't recognise peripherals and sometimes won't save data. Now I'm not sure why this all is, but I'm thinking the that the processor and motherboard are not as good. I don't think they are branded parts. The RAM is Samsung and HDD is Seagate, so think this part is OK. my question is that do you guys think my problems are related to the Motherboard? If so, can I upgrade the motherboard and processor without disturbing the network and printer settings? Lastly, what is the best way method of backing up a server system? The settings are the most important part really.

Default Re: upgrading server system

you can use some backup software to record system state.

or you could use a program like Ghost or something similar to backup the entire server.

Ok, thats a start. Are there any free softwares on the market? And what about the upgrading of the server?
