Windows DHCP Server not working, not staying bound to NIC

I have a very simple single server environment I'm working on. The environment consists of 1 windows 2003 server that is acting as DC, DNS, WINS and DHCP. The problem is all of a sudden DHCP stopped responding. The sever as only 1 NIC and it is set statically to 192.168.0.1/255.255.255.0/192.168.0.254

The error in the event log says DHCP cannot be bound to an adapter with a dynamic address... When I go into bindings in the DHCP management tool, I see the one adapter and it is unchecked. I check the adapter and press ok. The second I go back into the bindings the adapter is unset again.

The event log error is ID 1041 source DHCPServer.

Has anyone seen this error before?

Uninstalled NIC from device manager, and then reinstalled it. It showed up as Local Area Connection 2 and then everything worked fine.
