two ways...

1. Open the services console in the Administrative Tools folder.  Look for services that are configured with "Automatic" startup which don't have the word "Started" next to them.

2.  Open Event Viewer in the Administrative Tools folder.  Look for error messages that tell you which services haven't started.  The error message will also give you a clue as to why the service hasn't started.

I just reread your question...  In the event log, the services will be marked with a red icon most likely in the "System" log.
