Dhcp client stopped at startup

my machine running xp service pack 2 has dhcp client service stopped at startup. It can then be manually started even though startup is set to automatic. AFD, NetBT, and Tcp/Ip are running and the machine - dell 1505 - will connect to the network/s after a manual start of the client. What can I do to get it to run automatically at startup?

  1. I've been having the same problem and found this solution:

    1- first you have to login using any user with administrative
    2- start---> Run---> regedit
    3- go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip.
    4- right-click on the Tcpip from the left tap menu and choose
    5- Choose (Allow) for all listed groups and users, then press apply and
    6- go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dhcp.
    7- do the same as before.
    8- Restart your PC

    Hope it works for you as well
