No, this is most probably a plugin you've activated _after_ the server
start, or simple a false written address. On the browser you'd receive
something like "page not found"

That might be the problem: the timeout defines the time the process should
try to finish its task. During this period other tasks will wait for the
first to finish. If you define 300 seconds, the other tasks will have to
wait up to 5 minutes - which will cause the music to stop, the player to
lose contact to the server and the display to go blank. Maybe it has not
even crashed but would work again after 5 minutes.

Reduce the timeout to 15-30 seconds and try again.

As kdf said try running the server from the command line. It would print
error messages. Open a command line and enter
C:\program files\slimserver\server\slim.exe
