    which services don't start?

    when they are set to automatic, they start up when they are needed, not all the time, or anyway they should do

    sorry

    i am trying to log onto the domain, and when i turn the machine on, ALL the automatic services are not starting, this includes DHCP, netlogon, TCPIP for example, so i am unable tolog onto the domain,

    if i select log off then log on again, i am fine - they all will start, but it is the initial powering up the machine where none of them start!!

    Bizzare

    post a HJT log, it might show something blocking them at boot

    go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

    also go to config/misc tools/press start up log and post that also

    make 2 logs

    one from a cold boot and then one from a log off/log on and see if there is a difference
