More about server service started

  1. Go Start to Run and type into the open box services.msc then hit Enter. Scroll through the aphabetical list for Server and double click it then change to Automatic, in the StartUp box, click Apply then click the Start button.

    Click Apply and OK to close the form then try your connection again. You may need to leave a few minuites break before trying to connect while the CBS Service wakes up.
  2. I checked the server services it is already in automatic mode

  3. Can you please check to see if the Computer Browser Service is also Auto and Started?
  4. Computer browser service is in manual mode
    IS this service can be cause of the problem

    It's the Service that sends the system out every ten minutes looking for computers which have joined your network since the last time it looked - actually every twenty minutes if there's a Windows 7 in the network. It was probably downgraded to Manual when the server Service on which it depends was closed but it's quite safe to set it to Automatic, click Apply then click on Start, then on Apply and OK your way out when it finishes loading.
  6. The computer browser service in manual mode i chnaged it to the automatic mode but still the problem exist , and there is also window 7 and Window vista in the network

  7. Vista should be unaffected but if the networking with Windows 7 is managed by the Homegroup, it would explain a thing or two.
  8. My network is managed by win 7 but it is in public network & also vista is unaffected so plz tell me solution & also explain the step to change win7 homegroup
