I recently noticed that the company web page was not working correctly and kept displaying HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable. I belive that the problem may be linked down to the SBS SharePoint AppPool  Application Pool service being stopped, however, the SBS App Pool services does not start up and keeps stopping it's self.

Is there a way of fixing this problem ?

My system is running SBS 2011 Standard Edition with SharePoint 2010
