Hello Bernard

This issue occurs when you try to start a service because it might be disabled or no associated devices are enabled. In order for you to solve this problem, go to Start > All Programs > Administrative Tools > Services.

Find the service that stopped or has been disabled and double click it. Go to Log On tab and check so it is not disabled for the hardware profile that you are using.

Just click Enable. At the General tab, look at Startup Type and be sure that the service is not disabled. Click Automatic for the service you want. Click Ok and every problem is gone.

I hope you will find this information useful.
