I can't get the internet because the DHCP Client is not running. I tried to start it again but I just get this error:
"Windows could not start the DHCP Client service on Local Computer.
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start."

It started in the middle of the night when the computer just shut off out of nowhere, then i started it again and the DHCP client wouldnt work.
I'm running Vista, anyone have a solution?
Please. :[

Hello speeedy,
Try going to start>run>cmd

type these commands in line by line and pressing enter after each line; make sure you're logged in as an administrator before doing this or you will be denied access.

NET START NSI
NET START TDX
NET START AFD
NET START DHCP

This page may help you out

To view the dependency services registered for DHCP Client Service, type the following command in Start, Run dialog:

CMD /K SC QC DHCP

Verify the output. It should be exactly as below:

[SC] GetServiceConfig SUCCESS

SERVICE_NAME: dhcp
TYPE : 20 WIN32_SHARE_PROCESS
START_TYPE : 2 AUTO_START
ERROR_CONTROL : 1 NORMAL
BINARY_PATH_NAME : C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs
LOAD_ORDER_GROUP : TDI
TAG : 0
DISPLAY_NAME : DHCP Client
DEPENDENCIES : Tcpip
: Afd
: NetBT
SERVICE_START_NAME : LocalSystem


In Vista, you should see NSI, Tdx, Afd under the DEPENDENCIES, instead of Tcpip, Afd, NetBT

Hope that helps :)
