Hi, I am new here and need some help and i hope i am in the right forum
My PC crashed and I decided to get an upgrade. So I got a 500GB hard disk and then started to install my windows XP media center.Everything worked fine and after finishing the installation I started to install other drivers. That is when the problem stated. As I had an ATI card I used the original CD to install the driver but the moment I clicked the install option this dialog box pops out
Setup fails to launch installation engine The RPC server is unavailable
And after that the installation close and that it. I tried other driver like my printer’s driver and it says the same. I can’t do much and really need your help. I also noticed that under Administrative Tools - Computer Management - under Storage, when I click on it a dialog pop up and says
Logical Disk Manager The RPC server is unavailable
Was due to DCOM Service Process Launcher services status as stopped.
So i started the DCOM Service Process Launcher but after loading for a few seconds a diglog box pop and said
"Could not start the DCOM Service Process Launcher service on local computer
Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion"
I then clicked ok and i noticed under the services status for DCOM Service Process Launcher as starting. So i start to install my ATI installation CD and it worked. However after i restarted the PC it says that the ATI software could not find the hardware. I then checked DCOM Service Process Launcher and found the services status as stopped
It looks like each time i restart my PC the DCOM Service Process Launcher service is stopped. Any way to get around this problem
