JSI Tip 7141. Your Window 2000 Server records event ID 2019 in the System Event log after slowing or hanging?

After exhibiting slow performance, or failing to respond, your server records the following in the System Event Log:

Event ID: 2019
Description: The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the Pool was empty.

In addition to the other reasons I have documented for event ID 2019, this problem can occur if you have an Intel network adapter and you do NOT have the latest driver. Previous drivers leaked memory, causing the subject behavior.

Download the latest Windows 2000 driver for your Intel network adapter.
