I had just build my third computer, first by myself. I had no problems until i had triedto install software for my network adapter. it got to 30 percent complete and the error message rpc server unavailable came up. I have read all the other threads on this topic and have tried the suggestions. I have no printer connected to my computer. Also when i installed my mobo driver it had 3 programs that couldn't install because of rpc server unavailable. happy to try any suggestions

Hi there :) Welcome to GeeksToGo!

What CD did you use to install the OS on the system? You might try installing the OS from an original CD with it's own Validation key.

What else have you tried?

Go to Start > Run and type in services.msc

Do you see Remote Procedure Call (RPC) on the list? is it set to Automatic?

If it isn't set to automatic you can do so by right clicking on it and changing it in its Properties.

This is starting to look like a possible infection has interrupted your rpc server.

Go to Start and then to Run and Type in dxdiag and then click Enter
At the bottom of the System page click on Save All Information
Save As a Text file and save to Desktop.Include this file with your next reply.
On the DirectX Files tab, check at the bottom of the window for any problem notes.
On the Display Tab click the
Test DirectDraw button and wait for the results.
Then click the Test Direct3D button and wait for the results.

In your next reply include results of each of the above steps.

before i try that i must say. i have not been online on this computer. i just built it 3 days ago. all that i have put into the computer disk wise are drivers from my hardware. I have no idea how i could have gotten an infection. i will try it if it comes to it. an it friend of mine says that it might be a bug with win xp media center. is that worth looking into or resolving?

Then I doubt it is a infection

try booting to the XP cdrom and click on the R when a blue screen shows with 3 options

They will be:

To set up windows Xp now, Press Enter
To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, Press R
To quit setup without installing Windows XP, press F3


Do the highlighted one
Once at the command prompt type the following command:

enable RpcSs SYSTEM_AUTO_START

then click Enter
Type Exit
and let the system boot normally
Try installing the network adaptor then
post with the results in your next reply
