First off check the event logs, I personally would clear them, then try to run the service and see what is generated.

If the server is running DHCP you will need to follow these steps http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771670(v=ws.10).aspx

You also want to check what account the services are running under is not locked out/disabled.
