Check for terminal services logs under event viewer.

Make sure terminal services is running.
Check to make sure your firewall is not blocking the RDP port.
Review the Event Logs for Terminal Services errors.

When you attempt to connect with Remote Desktop from a client, what happens?  Do you get a login prompt, or does the connection attempt error out?  If an error, what is the error?

You might want to see if you can determine how Terminal Services was disabled.

Could it have been another admin?  Normally services don't disable themselves.
