Services.msc fail to automatically start

Specs: Windows XP, 3 Ghz with 1Gig DDR ram
I recently reformatted my computer and I seem to have some difficulties with "Services.msc". I am running Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3 on an Intel Pentium 4 model D915 GAV. My problem is that most of the services under "Services.msc" that are set to automatic do not run on start-up. This includes the DHCP client to get on the internet, and the Windows Installer service needed to install lots of programs. I can open and start services manually without any problems. When I try to go to the "dependencies" tab in the properties of these services, I am hit with a "Win32: The RPC server is unavailable." That error has come up when trying to install my sound drivers off of my driver disk as well. I have an Everest report if that will help at all.
Thank-you in advance!

There are so many variables, see if the bleeping page helps.

Thanks for the reply but they did not help. The Google link is pretty funny, I thank you for the blow to my intelligence. I wouldn't come to this site if I have not previously researched my problem. I figure XP is outdated so I'm upgrading to Windows 7 and be done with it.
