✔ Best Answer
The service for DHCP is DHCP client.

What does an ipconfig /all show?
Is DHCP enabled?

You have to figure out, why DHCP service on your computer is not starting.

Or, if you know the ip of your router, you can set the ip address of your computer manually.

E.g.:
If the routers ip address is 192.168.1.1, and has a default subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, you can configure your computers ip address as follows:

ip address:          192.168.1.2
subnet mask:      255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.1.1  (your routers address)
DNS server:        192.168.1.1  (your routers address)

Therefore, you have to check the errors in event viewer to figure out, which service or dependency causes the DHCP client not to start.
