doesn't sound like routine server maintenance has been performed regularly.

you changed dns to what? it should be pointing to itself
your workstation dns, is that set to the ip of the server?

I would suggest you get back in under safe mode.

run chkdsk /r on the drives
run disk cleanup with everything checked
run defrag
check the event viewer logs for errors
