Certificate service will not stay started for Windows 2003 Server

I have a Windows 2003 server that is running Certificate services. I recently renewed the certificate. The CertSvc will not stay started. I can start the service without an error but when I refresh the page the service is stopped again. I receive the following logs:

Did you check the CA's root signing certificate? (and all the other certificates up the signing chain?)
Try to identify by modifying the following error details with yours:
C:\>certutil -error 2148204801 0x800b0101 (-2146762495) -- 2148204801 (-2146762495)

It makes sure, one or more certificate has been expired.  You may find that now. and need to replace same.
